Shattered (3:47)

Cover of The Rolling Stones Singles Box Set (1971-2006)

From The Rolling Stones Singles Box Set (1971-2006) and 19 other releases

“Shattered” is a song by The Rolling Stones from their 1978 album Some Girls. The song is seen as a reflection of American lifestyles and life in 1970s-era New York City, but also influences from the English punk movement can be heard.

Recorded from October to December 1977, “Shattered” features lyrics by Mick Jagger on a guitar riff by Keith Richards. Jagger commented in a Rolling Stone interview that he wrote the lyrics in the back of a New York cab.

“Shattered” was released as a single in the US and in 1979 climbed to #31 on the Billboard Hot 100. The Stones memorably performed the song live for an episode of Saturday Night Live during which Jagger apparently licked Wood’s lips and tore his shirt off.
