  • "Cool Jerk" has been covered by many bands, most famously by the Go-Go's, who recorded no fewer than three studio versions of the song.
  • - When the Capitols attempted to release "Cool Jerk" in England, a copyright infringement charge was brought before them because another well-known band in England was performing under that title. As a result, they released the single under their prior group name, the "Three Caps".
