"Cold as Ice" is a song by Foreigner which describes a woman who is materialistic and selfish, with the singer warning that her behavior will come back to haunt her someday. Foreigner's guitarist Mick Jones, who formed the band in 1976 and wrote this song with lead singer Lou Gramm, told us: "Subconsciously you draw from stuff, things that happened in your past, things that came out of relationships, the pain and the heartache of love that is intense and then so deep, and then suddenly you lose it. The whole gamut of emotional feeling that you go through in a relationship. Sometimes they end, and sometimes they last, and when it's the final breakup, you're left with the memories of that relationship. So I go for that quite a bit. You're kind of digging down deep into your well of significant things that you recall from sometimes near tragedy that you go through at the time."

In the "Revenge of the Mooninites" episode of Aqua Teen Hunger Force (season one, disc two), the Mooninites acquire the Foreigner Belt, a magical belt that makes literal the lyrics of Foreigner songs. For example: "Cold as Ice" freezes Carl solid, "Dirty White Boy" makes Meatwad act like an irreverent redneck, "Double Vision" messes up Frylock's vision, "Hot Blooded" heats up a pool the Mooninites are swimming in, and "Head Games" turns Carl's head into a Connect Four grid.

In 2001, the Rap duo M.O.P. sampled this for a song of the same title.
