"This Is Your Land" is a song by Scottish rock band Simple Minds from their album Street Fighting Years, released as a single on 10 April 1989. The song features Lou Reed as guest vocalist. The single reached #13 on the UK singles chart. The music video was shot in Spain.
The song was praised by David Sinclair of Q magazine as part of a five-star album review given to Street Fighting Years. Sinclair wrote: "The utterly beguiling melody of 'This Is Your Land', featuring a deadpan Lou Reed, cloaks a stinging rebuke on the issue of the environment while gently leading the listener up towards the panoramic splendour of the instrumental coda."
