August Burns Red Music Used as Instrument of Torture on NCIS: Los Angeles
The February 14 episode of CBS’ NCIS: Los Angeles, “The Frogman’s Daughter,” featured a plot point in which a character’s daughter is kidnapped and tortured via the use of “Bones,” a track from August Burns Red’s 2020 release, Guardians. You can watch the scene in question below.
What’s really great about this is that it makes for the rare story that every metal fan is sure to enjoy: August Burns Red fans will be happy the group got extra exposure, and August Burns Red haters will find that the jokes write themselves. Everyone wins.
Interestingly, this isn’t the first time NCIS: Los Angeles has referenced metal, and it’s not the first time a CBS show has featured a scene in which metal is used to torture someone — Pig Destroyer were utilized for the same purpose on MacGyver in 2019. Dunno what that’s all about.
Guardians is out now on Fearless. Get it here.
