The Very Best of Jimmy Somerville, Bronski Beat and The Communards is a compilation album covering Jimmy Somerville's career in Bronski Beat, The Communards and as a solo artist. It was released in 2001.

Although Bronski Beat had two hits after Sommerville's departure, they are not included on the compilation as it is intended as a retrospective of Somerville's career. The compilation reached number 29 in the UK Albums Chart.
