I'd love a whole section on slang in various areas. We had a thread once on a forum I frequented that had a great Spanish slang thread. There were entries on how to say things like "You are on crack, dude" in Spanish, Mexican, and South American Spanish. I loved that "I'm going to beat your @$$" translated literally as "I'm going to give you a communion wafer". There were some great phrases included. In my opinion, stuff like this should be what we spend our lingots on. And swear words. We definitely need to learn swear words.

To answer your question, I have no idea how to say "rocking" in that sense as a transitive verb in Spanish. I'm following to find out because I want to know too!

The likelihood of equivalent colloquial expressions are rare. There are probably many expressions that can not be translated or explained.

While I understand why some people down-voted your question I'm going to offer you some sound advice for learning a new language or culture. Let it be. Instead of trying to find out how would you say "I'm rocking this hat, or these shoes" try to learn their unique colloquial expressions. Note, there are many words, and expressions used Puerto Rico that are not used in México, Chile, Columbia, Argentina, and Spain. And vice-versa.

If you're bleeding, do you ask for a band-aid or a plaster?
