Intrigue at the Indy 500
When Jem and The Holograms perform a cover of a song called "Rock And Roll Is Forever" at an outdoor concert, they infuriate an elderly singer named Bobby Bailey, who turns out to be the lead singer of a 50's rock and roll band called Bobby Bailey and the Tornadoes.
However, Bobby turns out to be a man with a big heart, but also a big problem: his flat is scheduled for demolition and Eric Raymond is behind it. Will Jem and the Holograms manage to help Bobby or will the wrecking ball win the day?

- Bobby: That song was meant to be played straight and simple without those new fangled synthesizers, moogs and other electronic claptrap.
- Kimber: What good is a guitar if you can't plug it in?
- Bobby: That song. That song was all wrong.
- Kimber: What makes you such an authority on how we should be playing that song?
- Eric: Oh, how relaxing! (maneuvers the wrecking ball at the building)
- Stormer: You sure got weird hobbies, Eric.
- Bobby: (to Kimber) I may be an old fossil to you, but I don't need some new wave-age, space cadet to tell me how to swing a hammer.
- Jem: Eric Raymond is really playing dirty.
- Bobby: Hey, it could be a lot worse. Eric could bring back the Misfits and have them play their music.
