"40 Years - Then Death" is a 1986 single by Australian alternative rock band TISM.

It was originally released on white vinyl in a clear plastic wrapper with no identifying labels of any kind.


The song portrays an early-twenties male's despondent view of his remaining sex life: 40 more years of "living" then "death".

The single earned TISM recognition as their earlier single "Defecate On My Face" was very infrequently played on radio, if at all; where this single was quite radio friendly.

The snippet after the main song is called "Art, Religion and the Neo-Classical Dialectic", part of a longer piece called "Ezra Pound, Axe-King", which has nothing to do with the song from Great Truckin' Songs of the Renaissance and was released in full on Best Off in 2002.
