  1. HAppy 30th! Ground breaking body of art. Hands down

  2. @Youtube @UniversalMusic. You Jack'd this up big time… The video is missing the chants at the start and audio is not clean near the end… This is music video is ICONIC. Do better. At least watch the video back and compare before upload….

  3. Happy 30th anniversary. It's sad how this video is more relevant than ever

  4. I have to to dis dance for drill team. I’m doing the same moves as them XD

  5. Rhythm nation turns 30s years old

  6. I can't hardly understand a word of this song, but the dance moves are off the chain.

  7. 30 years ago. RN30.

  8. 😍 2019 😍

  9. She should become the queen of pop, not that fuckin' madonna.

  10. まさしく安室奈美恵の原点。特にHide & Seekの世界はRhythm Nation に影響受けているな、と推測されます。さらにはWILDにも見受けられます。
    日本のジャネットは安室奈美恵でした。うーん、どっちもカッコいい!!!!!!!!!

  11. This video should have 100 million views

  12. We are a multi geographical society that needs to embrace one another's amazing and interesting attributes/cultures/languages/spirituality/history then, conquer the idea that must divide. My favorite thing is diversity and enjoying the opportunity to learn something new and engaging. Today, they are just looking to divide and conquer our individuality by selling everyone a bunch of truly vanity clad ideas of what we want. When in reality there is a true sense ( a human desire) to be just, me. I am really concerned about the results of where WE ARE NOW 🙁

  13. Tyrin Turner from Menace II Society is the kid in the video.

  14. One word describes the choreography in this video…exceptional!

  15. If you love this, go check out my Rhythm Nation Album Mash up over on my page….It's a tribute to 30 years of one of the greatest albums ever

  16. Jant Jackson 👑

  17. We are apart of the Rhythm Nation ✊🏽

  18. She. Nailed this

  19. I. Can never get tired of this vedio and song

  20. Janet. n. Those. Dancers. Omg. Flawless

  21. U. Go. JANET

  22. Who else is on a rythm nation marathon to commemorate the 30th year anniversary!!!???

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

  24. 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.

  25. This song will never die

  26. Her voice is EPIC♡

  27. いつ見てもカッコイイ‼︎

  37. Amazing

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

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

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

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

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

  43. how boring.. nothing close to michael

  44. 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….

  81. ❤❤❤❤❤❤❤❤❤❤❤❤

  82. OLIMPIADAS 2019 MALARDO

    FFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFF

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

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

  85. iconic

  86. Is that Kane from Menace to Society?

  87. Raw talent. Janet all day 🖤🖤🖤

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

  89. 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. 💚

  90. 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??

  91. Happy 30th anniversary to rhythm nation

  92. The Legend of the Jacksons

  93. 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.

  94. Amazing song

  95. 2019?

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