"Cold" is the first single released in May 2004 by the rock band Crossfade. It was the lead single released from their debut full-length self-titled album Crossfade in 2004. It fared exceptionally well on rock charts worldwide and is their biggest hit to date, reaching #81 on the U.S. Hot 100, #3 on the U.S. Mainstream Rock Tracks, and #2 on the U.S. Modern Rock Tracks, as well as reaching #48 on the UK Singles Chart. The song was released as downloadable content for Rock Band 3 and Rock Band Blitz on November 20, 2012.
The video was directed by Martin Weisz. It features the band playing in a dark room of a house. A woman (Beau Garrett) walks in the house, standing and admiring the band performing for a while. She then walks up to Ed Sloan, but he continues to play and ignores her. She then walks into his room, falls on his bed, and finds a guitar under his sheets--a possible reference that he played music before the loved person in question. She proceeds to pack some items into a bag and walks back to where the band is playing, towards Sloan.
The woman stands there for a while, then she goes back into the bathroom, with Sloan right behind her. She picks up a picture of the two of them, and throws it into the toilet, symbolizing the end of the relationship. She takes a toothbrush and then walks through Sloan, who becomes transparent--making a reference to how he was never really there for her. She goes out of the bathroom, to the door, and stops to look back at the band playing. Sloan looks at her, then looks away. She leaves the house, presumably for good.
