Brought forth from Stardust Promotion's 3B Junior (their idol training division), Rock A Japonica was originally known as the "King Records Unit." The five of them were chosen to receive a major debut under Evil Line Records, Stardust's division of King, which is also Momoiro Clover Z's record label. Though they still participate in 3BJr events, they are the only ones among the larger group to have major releases, MVs, and a full website. The name was chosen with the meaning of the group meant to ROCK the state of JAPONICA, and their intent is to shake up the Japanese music scene as a whole, not just idol music.
The group has so far released 2 singles, debut "World Piece" and "Kyouka SHOCK!" (教歌SHOCK!). The group members do not have established member colors, but for the second single, they each represented different school subjects. The first single came in 3 editions, the second came in 7, 5 of which featured an individual member focus for their respective subjects. These editions also came with different B-sides, each of which had a different lead vocalist depending on the subject.
