‘Case’ finale to feature 16 Pearl Jam hits

Sixteen songs from the rock band Pearl Jam will be heard throughout the two-part season finale of Cold Case, CBS said.

The episodes featuring only Pearl Jam tracks are to air May 3 and May 10, the network said.

This marks the first time 'Cold Case' has exclusively showcased the music of one artist/group in more than one episode -- and the first time Pearl Jam has permitted a program to make selections from their entire catalog of music, CBS noted in a news release. A number of featured songs will be from the band's 1991 debut album 'Ten,' which is being reissued on March 24.

We're thrilled to have Pearl Jam's music in not only one, but two, of our episodes. It's also a great fit with the team's murder investigation of a trail-blazing female cadet, writer and executive producer Greg Plageman said in a statement.

Past single-artist episodes of Cold Case featured the music of John Lennon, Frank Sinatra, Nirvana, Johnny Cash, John Mellencamp, Bruce Springsteen, Tim McGraw, U2 and Bob Dylan.
