A given episode of hit TV show "Portlandia" might feature a flurry of celebrity cameos in addition to a rotating cast of players, and the new season of the IFC sketch comedy show should prove to be no different.

Today (Dec. 10), IFC confirmed the fourth season of "Portlandia," with an array of musicians set to make an appearance once it hits the airwaves -- including former Guns N' Roses bassist Duff McKagan, Queens of the Stone Age frontman Josh Homme and Michael Nesmith of the Monkees, reports.

Other musicians set to cameo include Wilco's Jeff Tweedy, St. Vincent, TV on the Radio's Tunde Adebimpe, k.d. lang and the Dead Kennedys' Jello Biafra.

The show, starring Fred Armisen and former Sleater-Kinney singer Carrie Brownstein, has featured Aimee Mann, members of the Decemberists, Jack White, Eddie Vedder and many more in addition to various actors and comedians.

"Portlandia" is set to premiere Feb. 27 on IFC.
