“Let’s get rocks”

Post by Valero » Sat Sep 15, 2018 6:36 am

I saw this on a t-shirt one of my friends is about to make for a sports event.

Let’s get rock (or "rocks", I am not sure).
And there is a dirt bike on it too.

The event is dirt bike racing, my friend is Hungarian just like me and he does not speak English well. Therefore i dont think it is figurative or a word play. My worry is that it is a mistake. That is why I wanted to ask native speakers after having browsed the internet to find something similar which i have not.

What does "let’s get rocks" mean? It does not sound right to me. Any thoughts on it?

Thanks

Doesn’t mean much to me. Do you know what your friend is trying to say?

Is it some reference to rocks in the mountains or dirt track etc?
