: What's the meaning "rock the bop"?

: Thanks

I don't know. You're Bob, you tell me! :-) Could it be to do with musical genres? Rock music influencing or taking the place of Bop, which of course is some sort of Jazz. If not, then maybe a more general meaning of "rock" is implied, as in "this thing rocks!" (i.e. is very good). Thirdly, there's the the "rock" of "rock me baby" or "if you won't rock me, somebody will." What "rock" means here exactly is anyone's guess. I'm guessing it's something that rhymes with rock...
