"In the Air Tonight" is a song by Nonpoint, featured on the album Recoil in 2004. It is a cover of the song of the same name by Phil Collins, originally released on the 1981 album Face Value. It appeared in the Miami Vice film.


  • "In the Air Tonight" is the final song to appear in the theatrical cut of the Miami Vice film.
  • The song is one of the few obvious links between the film and the television series, as director Michael Mann wanted to keep the two entities separate.
  • The music video for the song contains numerous clips from the film, interspersed with the band performing the track beneath a Miami freeway. It was included as a bonus feature on certain home video releases of the film.
  • In the theatrical cut, the song is played over the end credits. However, the Director's Cut relocates the track to the build-up to the climactic shootout, thereby mirroring the original's use in the television show.
  • Whereas the original song is essentially just an extended build-up to the final chorus, the Nonpoint cover is more of a traditional rock arrangement.
