I now REALLY want a shamisen now. Found this video randomly on YT and I seriously never thought that rock and traditional Japanese music could be put together and made to be so awesome.

Shamisen rock!

Whaddya think?
The first sentence of your post felt weird to read (two "now"s), but the video was actually pretty cool. It doesn't particular make me want a shamisen, though.
The intro riff kind of sounds like something Tool would do.
