As Oasis prepare to release what could be their final album, we’ve decided to pay homage to one of the greatest bands of all time by posting a series of their videos in the run up to the release of Time Flies... 1994-2009.

Go Let It Out was released in 2000 as the first single from the fourth studio album Standing on the Shoulder of Giants. The song peaked at #1 in the UK charts where it went Silver. The song was the 36th best selling single of 2000 in the UK.

The lyrics are a similar vein to "Roll with It" in that it encourages the listener to get on with their life. The song samples the drums from Johnny Jenkins' version of Dr John's "I Walk on Gilded Splinters". The title may be a reference to the line in "Hey Jude" by The Beatles, "So let it out and let it in, hey, Jude, begin".

Noel described the song as "the closest we came to sounding like a modern day Beatles" in the 'Lock the Box' interview found on the DVD in the special edition of Stop the Clocks. The lyrics appear to be directly influenced by R. L. Sharpe's poem "A Bag of Tools".
