    "Jerk It Out" is a song by Caesars which originally appeared on their album "Love For The Streets" and is also featured on the follow-up "Paper Tigers" in remixed form. There is also a Jason Nevins club remix, called "Jerk It Harder". Band members have been quoted as saying the phrase "jerk it out" and the song's lyrics mean "to just let out some steam, freak out, let yourself go, get crazy, etc.", although it has also been interpreted as a slang reference to masturbation and as being about amphetamines. The song was originally released in 2003 and only made an appearance on the UK Singles Chart (at a #60 showing). It was re-released in 2005 and appeared on their album of that year, "Paper Tigers". The re-release peaked at #8 on the UK Singles Chart and reached #70 on the Billboard Hot 100.
