Rhythm Nation


No one has harder beats than Janet. The work she did with Jimmy Jam and Terry Lewis is like nothing else. The music is so thick, so dirty, so heavy, and ultimately so hard-hitting- even twenty years later. In my mind, this is true industrial music. Throbbing Gristle, Cabaret Voltaire, SPK, NIN, etc all come up short. The images below are what come to my mind when I hear her music from Control and Rhythm Nation 1814. Here are my favorites:

1. Miss You Much
2. Alright
3. Nasty
4. Rhythm Nation
5. State Of The World
