Garbage is the name of a radio-only single released in 1996 by Australian alternative rock band TISM. It is off their album Machiavelli and the Four Seasons (1995).


The song, which superficially deals with garbage, enforced by the line "I know that we should separate our garbage / The environment will give us thanks" is, as a closer look reveals, about music, and especially the trend of "copying" older musical styles in an attempt to seem original. This is spelled out in the verse "What's so good about the sixties, that we gotta keep rewindin' the clock? / You know the best thing about the sixties? They never heard of classic rock."
