G.I.S.M. was a Japanese hardcore punk band formed in Tokyo in 1980. Even though the guitar style resembled heavy metal in many aspects, GISM was one of the first Japanese hardcore bands, while at the same time drawing influence from the early industrial/avant-garde music scene—something extremely uncommon in punk bands at that time

The acronym GISM had many different variations; they include: "Guerrilla Incendiary Sabotage Mutineer" (original), "God In the Schizoid Mind", "General Imperialism Social Murder", "Genocide Infanticide Suicide Menticide", "Gay Individual Social Mean", and "Gnostic Idiosyncrasy Sonic Militant".
