The Julien Temple 'documentary' film on the Sex Pistols, 'The Great Rock 'n' Roll Swindle' chronicled the legendary band's fictional rise and subsequent break-up from the perspective of 'The Embezzler', manager Malcolm McLaren. Infamous, even upon its release, the film was shunned by John Lydon and his appearance in it was taken only from old archive footage. When it came to putting together the soundtrack a similar approach was taken, with Lydon's vocals being taken from demo tapes and overdubbed with the rest of the band's newly recorded instrumental tracks.

What resulted was an eclectic mix of hits, covers and guest appearances, including The Sex Pistols' own versions of The Who's 'Substitute', Chuck Berry's 'Johnny B Goode' and Sid Vicious' take on Frank Sinatra's 'My Way', all nestled amongst tracks sung by Edward Tudor-Pole (of Tenpole Tudor), 'The Black Arabs' disco medley of the hits and a French version of 'Anarchy In the UK' (complete with accordion).
