New York experimental rockers Sonic Youth are to make a guest appearance on popular teen drama 'Gossip Girl'. Entertainment Weekly reports that the band will appear in the fifth episode of the forthcoming series, performing an acoustic version of their 1986 single 'Starpower'.

As unlikely as it seems, the respected rock band are apparently big fans of the show. Frontman Thurston Moore has already contributed a specially recorded cover of The Ramones' 'Sheena is A Punk Rocker' to a previous episode.

Gossip Girl co-creator Stephanie Savage said that Sonic Youth are 'the ideal musical guest' for the show, as well as being one of her favourite bands.
