"Strange Glue" is a song by Welsh rock group Catatonia. Written by guitarist Owen Powell, it was the band's fourth single to be released from International Velvet and charted at No. 11 on the UK charts.

As a solo artist Cerys later sang Strange Glue merged with the song Galway Shawl in concert.

The controversial b-side, "That's All Folks", was originally intended for the International Velvet album and had appeared on promo copies around the time of "I am the Mob" (but was later replaced by "My Selfish Gene" as the album's closer). The song was a scathing attack on their American label, Warners, written in 1997 when the band feared that they were to be dropped by the label or were to split up.[citation needed]

Irish rock band Aslan recorded a cover of the song, included on their 2009 album, Un'cased.
