Appearance Rhythm Heaven
Game Number 28
Perfect Reward Song (Rockers)

Rockers (ロッカー Rokkā?) is the 28th minigame in Rhythm Heaven. This game is about two rockers who rock out on stage. The sequel, Rockers 2, is unlocked later on. Furthermore, when completing Rockers with at least 15 Medals, Guitar Lessons Basic Course will be unlocked in the Medal Corner.


Rockers gameplay

In this rhythm game, the player plays as the rocker on the right of the stage. The player must wait for J.J. Rocker to finish his guitar routine for the player to copy. When the announcer shouts "Come on!" or "Last one!", you must join in with him and play the guitar routine together.


  • Tap: Prepare strum/mute guitar strings
  • Flick: Strum guitar

Timing Notes

  • Hit: White bolts will appear around the student Rocker.
  • Barely: Blue tears will appear around the student Rocker and the strum will be slightly off tune. A barely counts as a miss.
  • Miss: Yellow vines will appear around the student Rocker and the strum will be very off tune. J.J. Rocker will stumble over.

Rating Notes


  • "Audience reaction:"

Try Again

  • "You didn't play off each other well."
  • "You didn't play in sync too well."
  • "That last one was just meh."


  • "Hm..."
  • "I don't know..."
  • "Good enough..."
  • "I guess that was all right."


  • "You played off each other perfectly!"
  • "You two were in perfect sync!"
  • "That last one rocked!"




  • J.J. Rocker will double tap the guitar after each strum during the last verse of the song, which is not required to copy.
  • This is only one of three games in Rhythm Heaven to appear in only two remixes.
  • The guitars that the two characters use in every variation of Rockers highly resemble Explorers, which is also a popular model of guitar in the Guitar Hero community.
  • You do not need to mute the guitar at the same time except for the 10th strum (4th time it is your turn) and the Big Finish (last part of the game).
