  1. I'm blown away every time I watched this. It is quite simply one of the best music videos ever made!

  2. 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.

  3. This song will never die

  4. Her voice is EPIC♡

  5. いつ見てもカッコイイ‼︎

  6. Annapolis AVON Evaluation for Flight School Package RANGER AVON FLIGHT

  7. Anyone have part 2 or the long version?

  8. Para nada tiene la voz parecida a la de Michael Jackson

  9. DAMN that chorus is so late 80's it hurts!

  10. Yasssss remasterd and so timeless #Queen #Slay #Jtribe #Janet #ICON_JANET #RN30

  11. This Woman started a cultural revolution and it didn't matter what your race was you just loved her.

  12. 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!!! 👑🖤👑🖤

  13. At least we know where Britney take her inspiration !
    She learned from the best.

  14. Is it just me or when the guy has the nunchucks wasn’t there sound effects with that?? Or am I trippin?

  15. Wth 18 million views this video should have well over half a billion views and counting something doesn't seem right.

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

  17. Does anyone miss the ‘live’ sound effects of the original video like me?

  18. how boring.. nothing close to michael

  19. 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….

  20. 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.❤❤❤

  21. Never realised how P-Funk the chorus was to this until today.

  22. 30 years later and Janet is still the Queen! ❤️😍❤️😍

  23. This music video created the music video.

  24. Oh nooooo! It seems like they forgot to include almost all live effects in this new remastered HD version. 🙁

  25. YAS Ms. Jacksonnnnnn!!!! Y'all swarmin the Bey hive when Bey herself is STOMPIN in that Rhythm Nation! 😝 #YallBettaRecognize

  26. This song was probably one of the only few with a massive message.

  27. 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

  28. You've got 2 give it 2 Janet that's a badass woman just like her big brother Mike 👋😄 King and Queen of pop

  34. What happened to the "Ho! Ho! Ho! Ho! chant at 0:40?

  35. I just had to check this out again after Joseph Gordon Levitt's Lip Sync Battle performance. 👌👌👏👏

  36. I was 12 years old when my granma gave me this album for christmas in '89… still have it ❤

  37. Copia de Michael Jackson :v

  38. Didn’t you know???😆🔥

    *RHYTHM NATION 1814 (c)1989

  40. If you grew up in the 80s and 90s and listening to this song in 2019 give this comment a like.

  41. Take notes BEYONCÉ… Ms Jackson the original FORMATION…Go Janet, Go Janet😊

  42. I always dug Ms J put a little Sly and the Family Stone in the song…Rock On!!

  43. Sounds like communism

  44. Omg what a tune! If this was released now sure for No.1 spot period !!

  45. Where are all of those remasters you promised….hold my poodle

  46. Oto Janet Jackson .

  47. Esta cancion era de michael jackson pero le dio de regalo a su hermana que yo sepa

  48. I see the guy that plaed Cain in menace to society

  49. マイコー感がすごい

  50. She created the stanky leg😍

  51. 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*

  52. ❤❤❤❤❤❤❤❤❤❤❤❤



  54. Unfortunately, these kinds of choreos don't exist anymore in my opinion.

  55. this never gets out of fashion. so ahead of her time.

  56. Is that Kane from Menace to Society?

  57. Raw talent. Janet all day 🖤🖤🖤

  58. Umm guys that date where is posted is what practily near at my bday!

  59. 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. 💚

  60. 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??

  61. Happy 30th anniversary to rhythm nation

  62. The Legend of the Jacksons

  63. 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.

  64. Love her since that time and even a little before that ! Nice voice and her dance..just WOW !

  65. She Got Queen status on da Dance💯✨🎶✌️🎤🌕💛⭐

  66. the 1980s were so powerful.

  67. ジャナット、が、居なければ、EXILEわないだなあ

  68. 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)

  69. is there something different about the opening chords or am i just tripping?

  70. Too much editing in this video. Vastly inferior to older brother's Beat It and Billie Jean. Sad.

  71. 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.

  72. 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………

  73. 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.

  74. Oh my god 😍 so so good !!!!

  75. Tyrin turner in this video

  76. i love how she incorperated a classic mj move

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

  78. phenom talent overload – the woman is a force.

  79. 2019 ~ I was a sneaking listening to this as a kid in the 1980s cuz my parents were SDA.

  80. Much ado about nothing……

  81. when women didn't have to show skin…just talent…

  82. I didnt know Cain from Menace II Society was in this lol

  83. 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)

  84. still LOVE this album today! haven't been tired of it since 1989.

  85. Menace II society brought me here.
