With a pair of microprojector earrings and the words "showtime Synergy", Jerrica Benton's holographic computer transforms her into the "truly outrageous" Jem, the pinkhaired singer of the band The Holograms.
This fansite was started 22 years ago, as a tribute to the 1980's musical animated TV-series and doll line, and to the people and companies that made it all happen.
Here you can find in depth guides to the cartoon, reviews of the collectibles, behind the scenes material, and other fun and informative features. And be sure to check back for updates about it all.
Have fun exploring this site, and be sure to check out the blog!

New year! And no use talking about injuries that are impossible to recover from. I'm alive. Time to continue my work on this site anyway, with some new updates soon. Might announce some of it it via Instagram on the account chordselectric or via Tumblr. So be sure to follow.

I'm back! And Rock Jem is going to be ALOT bigger and better than ever (you can already find some updates)! It will never close down whatever happens. Even though my body is broken, I'm stronger than ever.
If you need some holiday reading, I can strongly recommend the four Jem episode reviews I did before my accident, you can find the links on the Tumblr page. They're definitely worth reading, with some unseen offical Jem art, and alot of well researched facts that no other Jem fan knew before. But the best is yet to come!
I hope everyone are enjoying their holidays, and their Funko Pop Jem figures. Remember to take care of each other, and to stand up for important things in this society like human rights, women's rights, and democracy! And fight against racism, homophobia and against hatred of minorities in general. And fight poverty in the world by the only effective way: politics.

I've been in an accident. I won't be able to stick to the plan for uploading the reviews of Christy's first 8 Jem episodes, and some other things. I finished the first four. And I practically finished the remaining four before the accident. Hopefully I will find energy to get them ready for upload some day, incase someone would like to see them.

The fundraiser for the main writer of Jem, Christy Marx, has reached beyond its goal! Amazing what people can accomplish together!
Visit the fundraiser page to see how it's going. Friends and colleagues of Christy, Jem writers, Jem voice actors, fans from around the globe, and creators of the new Jem comics, have all been very generous.
Rock Jem is not affiliated with the fundraiser. It was started by Ellen Guon Beeman who, like Christy, was a writer for the Jem cartoon, and in my opinion she is a hero for organizing this!
But everyone can do something! There are many places, active sites and social media accounts of fans, which are directly about the works of Christy, where this fundraiser still has not been mentioned yet.
If you have any doubt of the authencity of the fundraiser, visit Christy Marx's own facebook page and read her own message about the situation. And visit the fundraiser page to see a picture of what's left of Christy's home.
Read more about Christy's work on her site. Christy is responsible for stories about many of our favorite characters, like Jem in particular, Spider-man, G.I. Joe, Transformers, Conan the Adventurer, but also Ninja Turtles, He-man, and many others. And she is a person who many times has taken a stand for political issues in our society. A very strong and respectable person.
I can only imagine the long way for Christy to rebuild her world, as far as possible, and how every dollar helps her get through the day with the very basics. It would be a shame if the fundraiser stagnated after its initial goal. So if you are able to do something, I'm sure that would mean alot.

On November 8th, 2018, Christy Marx and Randy Littlejohn's home near Paradise, California, was completely destroyed by the Camp Fire. Please support the writer behind Jem by contributing to this fundraiser created by Ellen Guon Beeman.

The by far biggest update in the 21+ years of Rock Jem happened yesterday. Announced on the Rock Jem Tumblr blog (which you can also find a link to in the contents above).

So keep an eye out at the Rock Jem Tumblr blog if you don't want to miss alot of random fun stuff and even things that no other Jem fan knew before.

Checked Tumblr lately?
June 22, 2017
Time for an update! Infact there has been lots of unannounced updates continuously on this site! Did you notice them all? Well some were announced in the Rock Jem blog.
It became a little overwhelming to keep up with all the amazing official events going on in recent years for Jem. Many things deserved attention, while at the same time the original people behind Jem continued their careers with exciting news, and it's hard to keep all of this up for 20 years or choose what to concentrate on. Especially while finding time to update existing features about the classic Jem cartoon and products, which is also a big part of the heart of this site. Yes this site celebrates it's 20 years anniversary this year!
Instead of trying to do it all, this site will concentrate on continuing the features it does best, which are the features currently available on this site. There are enough people out there who are great at reporting Jem news, creating new fanprojects, and artistic features. This site will still try to be attentive with announcements and links and every now and then, and you're very welcome to post on the message board.
Thanks everyone who has participated on the journey for the last 20 years, and hopefully you will continue to come back for some exciting development in the upcoming 20 years and beyond! Alot of interesting updates are coming up!
