Sonic Youth are set to appear in an upcoming episode of the popular US television programme ‘Gossip Girl’.

The veteran rockers are reportedly fans of the show, and guitarist Thurston Moore recorded a cover of the Ramones‘Sheena Is A Punk Rocker’ for inclusion in a previous episode.

Now the band are set to perform an acoustic version of their 1986 single ‘Starpower’ on the fifth episode of the upcoming fall season, reports Entertainment Weekly.

‘Gossip Girl’ co-creator Stephanie Savage said the band are “the ideal musical guest” for a special event that will take place on the episode, adding that Sonic Youth are one of her favourite bands.

“I can kind of die now,” Savage said. “I don’t really have anywhere to go from here.”
