"Smeared" was the first full-length album released by the Canadian rock band Sloan. It was released in Canada in October, 1992, and in the United States in January, 1993, on Geffen Records. Like their first release, the "Peppermint EP", it was seen as a noisy pop record reminiscent of Sonic Youth with Beatles-style harmonies.

Jennifer Pierce of fellow Halifax, Nova Scotia band Jale sang backup vocals on "What's There To Decide".
