Happy Memorial Day from the That Grape Juice family to yours!

To ode the brave men and women who fight to protect our countries (on both sides of the pond), we’ve assembled a collection of military-themed music videos that we’ve grown to love over the years.

From Mariah Carey’s ‘I Still Believe’ to the iconic Janet Jackson‘s ‘Rhythm Nation’, the efforts of military servicemen and women have long stood as muses for some of music’s most memorable videos.

Take a look below for our faves and share some of your own:

In no particular order:

Rihanna – Hard

Katy Perry – Part of Me

Mariah Carey – I Still Believe

Cher – If I Could Turn Back Time

Madonna – American Life

Chris Brown – Don’t Judge Me

Trey Songz ft. Keri Hilson – Your Side of the Bed

Monifah – Touch It

Janet Jackson – Rhythm Nation

Michael Jackson – They Don’t Care About Us

Christina Aguilera – Candy Man

Ciara – Gimme Dat

Destiny’s Child – Survivor

…and of course

Whitney Houston’s ‘Welcome Home Heroes’ Rendition of the “Star Spangled Banner”

Share some of your favorites below…

    Wow… Unbelievable.. My friend Emily has just married to a handsome wealthy black manThey met through ~~MìxedMatchìng.Çoм ~~Serious interracial dating is an ideal platform for afro romance for black & white singles. So, if you want to look for people with which you can date, you are at the right place.You can meet(lawyers,busy professionals, benefactors. models, celebrities, etc….)If you are single, perhaps you can have a try.

    I think over half of these videos glamorize the military and real war… Trey Songz, Katy Perry and maybe Chris Brown did it right. But seriously Candy Man??

    The military is filled with real women and men who do enjoy a smile during their day. I get what you’re saying, but this was just military-THEMED, not “Based On A True Story.”

    RHYTHM NATION is the BOMB…Infact the impact of this video can be seen in Michael’s HIStory and it’s accompanying world tour besides several of today’s music artists…

    Marilyn Monroe was/is the most beautiful woman ever, Mariah, Madonna and others look like clowns while trying to imitate her.

    DAMN,They’re only paying homage…they aren’t trying to be her.I know i’ll never win this argument but i think MC did a good job on I STILL BELIEVE just as MADGE did a brilliant job in LIVE TO TELL paying homage to MARILYN

    I would say Mariah and Rihanna kinda embody the theme the most. Mariah really went 100% with the whole Marilyn Monroe look and actually filmed with the troops so that was kool.

    I love Rihanna’s costuming and the videos concept really works!
