April 27, 2021 - 19:15 / Lucas Anderson

Criminal Minds had a loyal fanbase across its 15 seasons on the air. And the series was so successful not only because of tension and well-crafted drama, but also because each scene was made unforgettable thanks to its soundtrack. Here are five songs that are guaranteed to make you remember Criminal Minds.

We start the list with a well-known song that's also been featured in other films such as Fight Club. That's right, we mean the song "Where is My Mind?" by Pixies.

Coldplay on Criminal Minds

Another unforgettable track inside and outside the series is "The Scientist," the second single from A Rush of Blood to the Head by Coldplay. The song, which Chris Martin wrote with an old out-of-tune piano, got strong reviews on its release and the video also won multiple awards.

The Criminal Minds soundtrack: "Sympathy for the Devil"

The classic "Sympathy For The Devil" by the Rolling Stones also served to highlight the scenes of Criminal Minds. Famously, the 1960s track earned the Stones the label of Satan worshipers due to its lyrical content.

Criminal Minds music included David Bowie

With "Heroes" by David Bowie, there was perhaps no better song to pay tribute to the people who risk their lives to protect the lives of others.

Johnny Cash's "Hurt" was a Criminal Minds song

Johnny Cash's timeless cover of "Hurt" by Nine Inch Nails was also a memorable part of the soundtrack to the series. The heartbreaking song perfectly highlights what the members of this team have to face in each episode.

So there you have it. These five great songs memorably appeared in Criminal Minds, the hit crime drama series that came to an end in 2020. For more on the show, take our quiz here!
