"I Got Erection" is a single from the Norwegian band Turbonegro from their 1996 album Ass Cobra released on 7" Vinyl in 1995 by Hit Me! Records, which was run by longtime Turbo-photographer Morten Anderson.

First edition came out with red and black print, live photo insert, 300 copies on white vinyl. Second edition came out with green and black print, live photo insert, 300 copies on black wax. The third edition came out with slightly different red print and the insert photo of Pål Pot, 300 copies on black wax. The single was issued under the name Turboneger. Front cover could be the band's take on the Beatles Abbey Road sleeve with Hanky and Bingo crossing an Oslo street.

The B-side of this single, Jeg Will Bli Som Jesus, is a Norwegian New Wave / angst-punk classic (originally by Kjøtt), sung by Eugene Chadbourne in 'phonetic' Norwegian.

There is also a German version of I Got Erection. It appeared on the 1998 compilation Der FC St. Pauli ist schuld, dass ich so bin!, which is a tribute to the Hamburg soccer club FC St. Pauli. It is also included in the compilation album Small Feces.
