  1. I'm going to miss the Jackson duo so much…. Michael already joined the heavens (and i feel the emptiness he left behind in the music world). I listen to almost every genre but they made the most wonderful and awesome music i have ever heard in my life.
    And they passed down a wonderful legacy to all musician.

  2. Who in their right mind would click on the thumbs down for this video?! Shame shame!!! Janet (and Michael) changed the game!!! King and Queen!!! 👑🖤👑🖤

  3. Why TF did they remove the sound effects from the dancers like that tho!? Those are part of what made this video so powerful!

  4. Man oh man…30 year anniversary…rhythm nation 1814 by janet jackson…still a classic to this day…..back in the late 80s i went to visit my mom in washington dc and she rented rhythm nation 1814 the music videos from blockbuster…blockbuster was popping back in the day…that was the best vhs video to this day….

  5. When she reached to this point in her career, you said to yourself, what can she do wrong. Her and her brother Michael were mesmering.❤❤❤

  6. No twerkin, no skimpy outfits, just pure talent and these lyrics are dead on to what's going on today in 2019 wish she could perform this at the Superbowl

  7. She could've skated as Janet Jackson. But she was like watch this. You can say Janet, and people will know who you're talking about

  8. This is my favorite Janet Jackson video.🎹🎻🎻🎶🎼🎶🎼🎵🎵🎵🎸🎤🎤🎸🎬🎨🎨📈📈🎥🎥📉🎷🎷📀🎹🎻🎼📻📼🎧🎺🎷🎷🎷🎹📀🎻📀🎻🎻📺🎯🎶🎶🎶🎵〽🎤🎤🎸🎸🎤🎸. Rhythm Rhythm Rhythm. Rhythm. Rhythm Nation. And the dancing is the best. This is one of the best videos in music r&b for decades. 👗💼👜👜👜🎹🎶🎹🎼🎻🎼🎻🎶🎼🎵🎼🎵🎼🎶🎼🎶🎼🎵🎼🎵🎼🎵🎼🎶🎼🎶🎼🎶🎼🎼🎷🎻🎷🎹🎷🎹🎷🎹🎷🎹🎷📻🎷📻🎷🎼🎺. Other than her brother, Michael.🎻🎼🎶🎶🎵🎵🎵🎷🎷🎷🎷🎺🎺🎺🎧🎧🎧🎧🎹🎻🎻🎹🎹🎹🎹🎼🎶🎶🎶🎶🎵🎵🎵🎵🎵🎵🎵🎶🎵🎤🎤🎸🎸🎤🎵

  9. My favorite Miss Jackson video. I'm going to see her in Nov. I always like to dress for the occasion, would love to dress as she looks in this video, have been looking on the Net for a full custom to no avail. Anyone have any ideas?? Last month we saw Phantom of the Opera and I dressed as Christine Dae'a. (the cemetery scene) Mahalo*

  10. I was a baby when this song came out. My cousin was in love with Janet Jackson, and, I was along for the ride. I fell in love with her, too, but Michael Jackson was like a King to me. I guess Janet Jackson is a Queen. 💚

  11. Me: man I’m bored..
    Me again: remembers Janet Jackson
    Me some more: bursts in to song WE ARE A PART THE RYTHYM NATION
    Mom: um….are you ok??

  12. The only person in the Jackson family that did her own thing without trying to use Michael's fame. I'll forever respect her for that. She became an icon in her own terms without sucking the life out of him like his other siblings.

  13. とんねるずのパロディプロモーションで、ジャネット・タカ代ジャクソン(石橋貴明)とマイケル・作三ジャクソン(木梨憲武)でこの曲。(金網越しにラトーヤ・久子ジャクソン(萬田久子)も)
    「ただいま、SALで移動中」で、JALのCMのパロディのオマケ付き。

  14. It always amuses me when I hear so many people who hate Beyoncé bring her up in the comment section of videos that have nothing at all to do with her lol.

    FYI: Saying an artist is overrated because they aren't your cup of tea, or because you can't understand why others like them doesn't make you cool, it makes you a hater.

    Good day.

  15. I didn’t know about Michael until after getting into JanJan. Only like a couple of his songs.
    Jan is Queen!
    Prince is King!
    Tina Landon, you are so friggen amazing!
    Lori-Elle girlllllllll………

  16. I never get tired of this song or video to be honest. It's one of my top favorite Janet songs if not my absolute favorite. Fantastic.

  17. "Rhythm Nation" was ahead of its time. Classic, iconic, timeless and unmatched. All hail to the Rhythm Queen — Janet Jackson. 👑

  18. i can't believe how fast the time went by!!! in 1989, that when vh1 first came on! i used to see janet on vh1 all the time back then (vh1 was mostly all vids when it first started out…no tv shows or movies)
