Smashed Gladys were an eighties glam metal band, formed in 1984, with Sally Cato on vocals, Bart Lewis on lead guitar, J.D. Malo on bass, and Matt Stelluto on drums. The band also had a succession of secondary guitar players (who, according to available credits, played some leads as well as rhythm): Tommy Wah in 1986, then Roger Lane from 1987 until the band's career ended. Cato and Lewis met in Canada, then moved to New York City, where they completed the line-up and built their career.

Ozzy Osbourne provided backing vocals for their song "Cast of Nasties". Lewis, Malo and Stelutto made cameo appearances in the music video for the Run-D.M.C. cover of "Walk This Way".

Smashed Gladys's self-titled YouTube channel was curated by Sally Cato, the band's primary songwriter.

Lead vocalist Sally Cato died on 19th May 2020.
