"Cold as Ice" is a 1977 song by English-American rock band Foreigner from their eponymous debut album. It became one of the best known songs of the band in the US, peaking at number 6 on the Billboard Hot 100. It was initially the B-side of some versions of the "Feels Like the First Time" 45 rpm single.

"Cold as Ice" was used as the soundtrack for a skit on the March 25, 1978 broadcast of Saturday Night Live that showed a man being attacked by a woman in a number of grisly ways. Host Christopher Lee introduced the segment as being "not for the squeamish".[1]

The song was later sampled by Scott Brown in the song "Ice Cold 2".[2] It was also sampled by M.O.P. in their song "Cold as Ice" from the Warriorz album.[3] It is featured in the video game Rock Band 3. American rapper and producer Kanye West used a sample of the record as part of an intro for his song "Cold" during his set at the Glastonbury Festival 2015. A cover version is heard in a commercial for Wendy's that debuted during Fox's broadcast of Super Bowl LI on February 5, 2017. Rapper B.o.B sampled the chorus of the song in 2010.[4]

The single version is a second shorter than the album version, but adds an orchestra track.
