Thumbs down How to remove old caulking

Im going to re paint the exterior of our house this summer. The caulking in the joints is cracking. Do I need to remove the old calking and apply new caulking, before I paint? Is there a "trick" to removing it?

Yup
Nope
Putty knives
...and razor blades if needed

Though I prefer a "5 in 1" tool to an actual putty knife for this
