A Zatoichi/Motorhead mash up is something you didn't realize you needed until now


Zatoichi is metal as f**k

The Zatoichi series includes some of the most badass samurai films around. Starring Shintaro Katsu, the story centers on a blind swordsman who turns a new leaf as a traveling masseur. His violent past follows him wherever he goes, however. He must atone for his past sins as a yakuza, often by fighting a whole lot of jabronis trying to kill him.

Motorhead is one of the best metal bands of all time. Fronted, anchored, and driven by metal-deity-made-flesh Lemmy Kilmister, Motorhead was fast and punchy as hell. They were also loud, with some claiming they were the loudest band in the world.

Metal City Mayhem made a video bringing two badass things together. Here's a music video for Motorhead's "Out of the Sun" comprised of clips from the Zatoichi films.
