    rock !

    Hi there.
    I read an article in Interchange 1 yesterday and now I'm going to ask you something about it.

    Well, the sentence that made me confused is:

    I'd rock on MTV
    So, what does "rock" mean exactly? As far as I know it means "stone", but what does it mean as a verb in that sentence?
    Please help me to figure it out.

    (If there are any mistakes in my writing please accept my apologies and show me them then I'll correct them.)

    Thanks.

    Re: rock !

    I think it is simply the verb form of the noun relating to rock (and roll) music. MTV is (well, was) a channel where rock music videos are played.

    Re: rock !

    not a teacher

    I feel that both notions are implied here. The speaker thinks that he/she would be "great/excellent on MTV", and in a very rock'n'roll way.

    See my corrections above. Don't leave a space before a question mark. Don't use non-standard things like "gonna".
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.

    Re: rock !

    MTV no longer plays music. It means "I'd be, like, totally amazing!"
    I'm not a teacher, but I write for a living. Please don't ask me about 2nd conditionals, but I'm a safe bet for what reads well in (American) English.
