|This article is about a/an episode in Power Rangers Ninja Steel.|
Rocking and Rolling is the ninth episode of Power Rangers Ninja Steel. It is the third episode of the Gold Ranger arc. It features the debut of the Bull Rider Megazord, and Galvanax's upgraded foot soldiers, Basher Bots.
The episode opens up on the Warrior Dome where Cosmo Royale introduces the audience to today's contestant, Stonedozer, and the newest model of Kudabots, the Bashers. Stonedozer brags to the audience that he can destroy all six rangers.
Speaking of whom, the six are getting prepared for Levi's Summer Cover concert where he reveals he's going on a three month long world tour. The Rangers are a bit cautious of this as it would mean they would be out a Gold Ranger for so long. Levi assures them he will be able to help, just as Mary, his biggest fan arrives. At the same time, Victor and Monty try to get into the concert and to perform on stage with Levi in Victor's latest popularity scheme.
During this time, a powerful earthquake hits, shaking the concert hall. Mick calls, saying the earthquakes are both unnatural, and the epicenter is near the concert hall. The Rangers go off to find them, but Levi must stay behind to prepare for the concert.
The Rangers go off to a newly created mine where they see Bashers hauling out a large number of stone and dirt out of the caves. Sarah and Brody infiltrate the mine while the others morph and fight the Bashers, noticing how much more powerful they are to Kudabots.
Inside the mine, the duo learn of Stonedozer's plan to collapse the concert hall with an earthquake. Brody tries to call Levi only his show is going on now. The Rangers fend off Stonedozer, just as the concert hall starts to fall apart. Levi manages to morph in time and saves Mary. In doing so, he realizes his place is at the Rangers' side. The six Rangers team up and fight Stonedozer in the quarry, with Levi dealing the killing blow.
The audience loves the fight, allowing Stonedozer to be Gigantified. Levi holds his own against the monster using the Bull Rider Megazord. Realizing he needs help, the others summon the Rumble Tusk Ninja Steel Megazord. The two titans team up and take Stonedozer down.
At a press conference at the high school that is attended by the Mayor of Summer Cove, Levi reveals he's going to postpone the tour to focus on his studies as a student. At the same time, Victor, wrapped up almost like a mummy, is given an award for bravely saving people, breaking every bone in his body. The Rangers see through this charade easily, knowing he didn't help. Hayley's dog Kody rushes on stage and grabs a loose bandage, revealing an unharmed Victor in his underwear. In humiliation and to avoid the Mayor's anger, Victor rushes off stage quickly with Monty right behind him.

- When Ninja Steel Gold summons the Bull Rider Zord he enters the cockpit, but when he activates Ninja Master Mode he "reenters" it.
- Also he acts like he activated the mode for the first time even though he first used it in the previous episode.
- When fighting Stonedozer atop that mound of dirt, a cloud of dust obscures the two combatants and then we see Stonedozer falling down the hill. Levi's arm was in a different position to where the moments before the shots demonstrated it should have been (across the left side of his body when it should have been pointing behind him). This implies that there was an attack during the dust cloud but there was no sound effect for it.
- Hayley claimed that Levi's concert was about to start even though the sign clearly showed that it wouldn't take place until later that night. This error remained throughout most of the beginning of the episode, as it was referenced over and over.
- While spying on the new foot soldiers from a hill, the entrance of the underground mine was light brown in color, had one wooden plank holding up the ceiling, and had something blocking the bottom half of the entrance, but when the Rangers attacked the soldiers, and Brody and Sarah ran inside, the design of it changed to being dark brown, having no plank to hold up the ceiling, and nothing was blocking the way of the entrance.
- During the shot of Brody and Sarah running in, both characters were oddly placed too close to the right, so Sarah's elbow clipped through the wall as she ran in. This was due to the shot of them running in not being real, as it was a camera manipulation green screen effect, most likely due to them not being able to go into the real one due to shooting reasons.
- Also the position of the two guards changed between the close and far shots of them guarding the entrance.
- During the earthquake evacuation, Sarah and Preston speak into the microphones. However their voices shouldn't be amplified as they both had a helmet on.
- Stonedozer grunted when the Rangers revealed themselves to have survived the stadium collapse although none of the lasers hit him (one going to the far left and the other behind.
- The Ninja StarBurger from Ninninger is used as Levi's camera. This is due to the use of Sentai footage where his counterpart took a selfie and then used it to summon Rodeomaru.
- It is revealed that Summer Cove is in California, much like the majority of the cities in previous seasons.
