"This Is Our Punk-Rock," Thee Rusted Satellites Gather + Sing, is an album released by The Silver Mt. Zion Memorial Orchestra & Tra-la-la Band (with choir). It was released August 25, 2003, in Europe and September 2, 2003, in the rest of the world by Constellation Records.

For this album, an amateur choir was assembled from a few dozen friends and colleagues. The liner notes contain a page of the score used by the choir in the opening track (the "fasola" section).

This album was essentially created as a requiem for open and abandoned spaces in Montreal (the band's home town), as well as for similar loss and decay around the world, due to either urban development or military action.[3]
