Barbie and the Rockers Onstage.bmp
Barbara Millicent Rogers, aka Mattel's famous Barbie doll, ventured into the rock music game as Barbie and the Rockers when under fire from Jem and the Holograms, but Barbie had a recording career far before that 1987 outing.

She appears as a nightclub singer (with Ken at piano) in the "Barbie the Nightclub Singer" story of Dell comic book Barbie and Ken #2 (August-October 1962).

In the early 1990s, a "Rappin' Rockin' Barbie" was released, along with a boom box that played "a real rap sound," according to the cringeworthy commercial.
