"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."

The song also appears on the band's 2003 release 39 Minutes of Bliss (In an Otherwise Meaningless World) and in the end credits of the film Looney Tunes: Back in Action. It was released as a single in the United States and United Kingdom in 2003 to promote the album.
