We've heard quite a few many AC/DC's Thunderstruck covers over the years, with the stand-out single from the band's 1990 album The Razors Edge played in all sorts of interpretive ways, including on a stylophone, via a pair of bagpipes, and on traditional Korean instruments. There's been covers by a monk and another by a baby, and it's even been reimagined in styles such as bluegrass, synth-wave and classical.
As the sun rises for a new day, so too does a new Thunderstruck rendition; this one however, might well just be the most enthralling version we've heard yet.
Performed by traditionally-trained musicians NiNi and ZuiKo, both from Taiwan, the cover sees the pair come together to perform on ancient Asian instruments in an epic battle: the Shamisen vs the Sanxian.
The Shamisen is a three-stringed ancient Japanese instrument derived from the Sanxian, a three-stringed traditional Chinese lute.
In the video, which was funded by the musicians' Patreon members, the duo flex their musical chops as their fingers fly across the instruments, delivering a performance that's fully entrancing from start to finish, complete with atmospheric chanting and vigorous drumming.
