Can You Recognize Who Performed on Gossip Girl?

We couldn’t. A few hints: His name starts with A and ends with T. His band hit it big during the garage-rock resurgence of 2001. He is notable for his (former) afro, which might explain why we were in the dark. The answer and some video, in case you missed his cameo, after the jump!

Albert Hammond Jr. of The Strokes! According to PrefixMag, the Gossip Girl clip was filmed before Hammond checked into rehab late last month. Grow back curly fuzz-ball, we miss you! Hopefully it’s back in time for the new Strokes record next year…
