Song: New Boyz "Jerk" (2009)
There have been several variations of dances on different coasts called "The Jerk" that have dropped over the years, but for '90s babies, this one is IT. The new school Jerk to L.A. is like what the Snap Dance is for Atlanta: a scene. Its popularity has become a literal subculture which recently soared to new heights when two West Coast high school buddies (the New Boyz) dropped a single called "You're A Jerk," bringing the dance to nationwide attention. In the video, a bunch of kids skinny jeans-wearing kids bust the move, which is basically jerking and wobbling your legs with a bit of other dances like the Dip and Pindrop thrown in.
