OK, if you've got that great album "NEVER MIND THE BOLLOCKS", there's the only thing left to be done - buy this album. Just because their next album "The Great R'n'R Swindle" turned out to be disappointing, but it had a few real good tracks (contributed by Sid Vicious), which all are included here.
This is a collection of all the Pistols' singles from 1976 to 1979, so besides the tracks from "The Swindle" (and "Never Mind..."), there is a great deal of famous tracks omitted from "Never Mind...": "No Fun", "I Wanna Be Me", "Did You No Wrong", "Steppin' Stone" and "Anarchy In The UK" - in its raw original version. You wouuld be enough satisfied.
[This collection originally was released in 1979 in the U.K.]

Though this doesn't have the attitude and fury of "Never Mind The Bollocks", it is essential for any hardcore fan of the Sex Pistols. Mostly a collection of covers, "Flogging A Dead Horse" is definitely memorable and fun to listen to. What's most reassuring is that it's not all "Bollocks" rehash, like so many other Pistols albums. The most memorable performances are Sid Vicious' heartfelt and furious butchering of Frank Sinatra's "My Way", and the Monkees' "Stepping Stone (I'm Not Your)", and among the worst are "Something Else" and "No Fun". I only gave this four stars because it is mostly non-Pistols material, yet it still rocks out like the Pistols should. This album shows the inspirations of the Sex Pistols' rage filled punk anthems, and gives insight into their musical backgrounds. Though not their best, it is recomended for the true fan.

Hey. Hey! HEY! Listen up now people - if you've been looking for a Pistols album and you already have Bollocks than this is the one for you. This one shines amidst the flurry of sound-alike compilations and so-called bootlegs. The first half has their essential tunes from Bollocks mingled with the more rare songs like the awesome I Wanna Be Me and the classic Did U No Wrong. The second half is what sets this apart from the other discs of the genre. Sid's incomprable My Way is included along with groove of Somethin' Else that was featured in Sid & Nancy but didn't make it onto the soundtrack. Tack on Swindle, No One Is Innocent, and a few other gems and you've got the best offering released under the Pistols name since they disintegrated after the 'Frisco show in '78. If you only own one Pistols album then you better go back, scroll up, and click on Never Mind the Bollocks. But if you're in the market for two then get to Floggin'!

Flogging a Dead Horse is a collection of singles that the Sex Pistols released from 1976 to 1979. Most of the songs feature Lydon, Jones, Matlock and Cook, but a few of them have studio Pistol and future Professional Andy Allen on bass. Material from Never Mind the Bollocks and The Great Rock n' Roll Swindle are represented on this cash-in disc (the end of the album has a cash register ring). A must have for Sex Pistols fans (I did u no wrong and No Fun)

Sid Vicious sings as well as Steve Jones and temporary Pistol Eddie "Tenpole" Tudor are on some of these tracks.

A good collection of singles that augment the Sex Pistols first album very nicely.

'Flogging A Dead Horse' is a collection of both the A and B sides of each of their seven (7) British singles released between 1976-79. All your favorites are here, like "Anarchy In The UK", their infamous "God Save The Queen", "Pretty Vacant", their Stooges cover "No Fun" and their remake of the Monkees hit "(I'm Not Your) Steppin' Stone". This fourteen track title MAY not be the best Pistol's compilation, but it'll simply do. Check it out.

Chronicling the band's UK chart success from 1976-1980, there are 11 "A-sides" and a trio of "B-sides," with seven tracks each from the John Lydon and post-Lydon periods.

The four singles with Lydon as lead vocaist are Anarchy in the U.K. (#38), God Save the Queen (#2), Pretty Vacant (#6) and Holidays in the Sun (#8), with the flip sides I Wanna Be Me, Did You No Wrong and No Fun. Pretty Vacant (#93) had minimal success on the U.S. single's chart.

The post-Lydon singles are built around the movie soundtrack, The Great Rock 'n' Roll Swindle, as the band carried on as a trio - Paul Cook, Steve Jones and Sid Vicious - with some lead vocals by criminal fugitive Ronnie Biggs. The fan interest remained solid, with the "Double A-side" of No One is Innocent/My Way (#6) the most intriguing, as Biggs and Vicious - respectively - handle the lead vocals, the latter becoming an instant classic in punk rock.

The other singles are Something Else (#3), Silly Thing (#6), C'mon Everybody (#3), The Great Rock 'n' Roll Swindle (#21) and (I'm Not Your) Steppin' Stone (#21); Lydon appearing through a 1976 demo, with a later re-recording of the instrumental track.

This is a solid collection which truly chronicles the band where it made the most impact...on the U.K. single's chart, which showed that there was much more on stage than the hype machine created by Malcolm McLaren.

If you love and respect real punk rock in all of its glory then show it...
I like the Pistols, and the bands you named are indeed teeny bopper crap. I think most people over the age of 20 or so know the difference.
