It was actually one of my favorite years. I was not bullied as much, the swine flu wound down, I made a best friend, I was considered the best swimmer on the swim team, I had really good teachers, I went snow tubing twice, I went to my favorite restaurant for the first time, and even though pop culture was terrible this year, the T.V. shows on my local T.V. stations were still good.

I was just 6 years old and almost everybody was friend is Kindergarten, now I'm gonna turn 14 in 1.5 months and I have barely any friends and where I live, we have to change from primary to secondary schools at 13 and hence my friends aren't with me, If I don't change to my 2010 self again I'm gonna be overweight, a loner, playing games all day and not studying.
2010 was amazing.

3 2017 2017 (MMXVII) was a common year starting on Sunday of the Gregorian calendar, the 2017th year of the Common Era (CE) and Anno Domini (AD) designations, the 17th year of the 3rd millennium, the 17th year of the 21st century, and the 8th year of the 2010s decade.

2006: Amazing (8/10)
2007: Awesome! - Best Year of My Life! (10/10)
2008: Pretty mediocre year, but not as bad as 2009, The only really bad thing about 2008 is Diabetes (5/10)
2009: Sucks, Because a lot of bad things happening, like the death of Michael Jackson, Analog T.V. is gone, Nickelodeon got rid of their orange slime, Toon Disney Turned to Disney, SpongeBob was at his worst, I was in the hospital for nearly a month back then, and I had a lot of bad school days in 2009, The only things that I miss about 2009 is the new Toy Story toy line back then and my young cousin born then. (3/10)
2010: Pretty bad at first, but it improved later on (4/10)
2011: Good. (7/10)

My Timeline:
2000: Born
2001-2002: Good
2003-2004: Started Preschool
2005: Best year because of video games
2006: My Favorite Years! (Nothing happened) video games look different then today
2007-2008: worst year 08 kind of
2009: Fine
2010: Better than 2011
2011: Uh... I was in 4th grade I had a teacher with me to go to the bathroom always with me I couldn't go by myself
2012: Sucked because in June 2012 My dad wanted to move to Mexico I disliked that year
2013: what Happened?
2014: Was a great year nothing happened
2015: I graduated grammer school entered High School
2016: The same thing as in 2012 2nd time My dad wanted to move to Mexico again I hate that so much!
2017: what just happened?
2018: I hope it could be the best year

Yep, I played roblox all day back then, not a care in the world. My life is still a lot better than it will be in a few years, but these were golden times.

I was 16, at highschool, almost adult but still I could have been careless, not thinking bout nothing, only crushes, music, parties, meetings with friends, studying for tests night before'em. I miss this, my life was very happy, but I think the peak of my happiness came in 2017, now we have 2019, I'm 18 and I have to start thinking about making money, working, University, paying bills and all the stuff that absorbes adult people. I'm just sad that times went by so fast... I always thought that adulthood=death! I just began adult a few months ago, I hope there are a lot of amazing moments that will happen to me still, even better than these in 2017

2012- best year of my life, nothing bad happened 10/10
2013- pretty bad year for me, 3rd grade happened, T.V. shows started to suck, my and my cousin hated each others, I got grounded a lot in that year. The only things I miss about that year are iron man 3, my sister was born, and my summer vacation 3/10

2015- good year 6/10
2016- worst year ever!

The only thing I miss about that year were me going to middle school, spending time with my friends, and I ...more

It is 2018 right now and I hope in just 2 years, we have either a 1980s, 1990s, or early 2000s comeback, if not then it would be worse than the 2010s, because of what I heard, there's nothing good on the radio anymore in 2018. If I were a singer in any band or a solo singer, I would actually revive an old band either Pink Floyd, or any other band from past, So I would help bring back all the 1970s/1980s/1990s/early 2000s nostalgia. So, I will not use any autotune in my music, because autotune is overrated now.

Ahhh yes, 2012! This was my favorite year right next to 2011. A great school year for me, I spent a lot of time with my family, and this was also a good year for music! Sure my sister was in hospital with a rare disease in this year, but she survived! I've got to thank 2012 for everything it has done for me and it will remain in the 3rd millennium history books forever!

5 2007

So many great video games came out that year! Team fortress 2, Super Mario Galaxy, God of war 2, manhunt 2, Metroid prime 3, Halo 3, mario party 8, modern warfare and so much more!

Here's my timeline/opinion:

1999: Born

2000 - 2003: Awesome years! Best movies, best shows, best music and best games of the late 90s and early to mid 00s
2004 - 2007: Great years, but not as good as the earlier years, but still had a great childhood
2008 - 2012: These years were okay, things were starting to change a lot
2013 - 2014: Bad. Things were starting to suck
2015 - 2016: Awful. Things were getting worse
2017 - Present: $#! tty music, movies, T.V. shows, etc.

2007 and 2008 are the years that I got good memories. Sometime I got Flashbacks back from those years and I almost cried, I past so much good times with my friends outside, now they are gone ( Drugs, dissapear, move away, talks with differents peoples ). I hope time inventor was created and move back to this year 2007 and 2008!

BEST YEAR EVER! The end of 4th grade and all of 5th grade were the BEST years of my whole life! The summer of 2007 was EPIC! I got to go to Las Vegas. I got the Nintendo Wii, one of my favorite video game consoles ever! This is my favorite childhood year by far!

6 2011 2011 (MMXI) was a common year starting on Saturday of the Gregorian calendar, the 2011th year of the Common Era (CE) and Anno Domini (AD) designations.

2011 comes tops for me, and it came after a good 2009 and 2010. A lot of stuff changed for me in 2012 and therefore '11 feels like the end of an era and gets me all nostalgic.

2010- I was 9 and my friend showed me the game The Sims. This summer I started to playing it and in continues till now in 2020, 10 years after that. With the same friend I for the first time ice-skated at the beggining of the year. It was still the time when the winters lasted in their natural honoured time.

2011- definitely one of the best time of my life. Music was decent- comeback of JLo, Rihanna, Britney, Lady Gaga, Katy were everywhere.

2012- for me, the end of the world really came at the end of 2012. The normal mentality, life-style and cool music have died. Still, it was the time when I was riding on my bike with our friends through the city in the hot spring and summer. It was cool time, I miss these Times.

2013- many sad things happened to me this year, even if I was only 12. There were cool events though- my mother came back from Italy after 9 years. Cool games came out these year- The Last Of Us, Tomb Raider, Beyond: 2 Souls…

2014- I've made ...more

Best year ever I had more fun my girlfriend and I had more romantic dates. She and I also had a really really good friend who later fell out of our life in 2013. We miss her but back then she was in our life but this year was amazing my girlfriend who is now my fiancee. I love this year so much I look at my photos of 2011 and remember all the dates with my girlfriend who became my fiancee this year of 2018. But still in my opinon 2011 thumps every other year in my life.

PERFECT! YEAR!
First Grade was lit
My family bought a brand new car!
I started playing Minecraft
The best music in history came out that year
We moved to a FAR better home
I FINALLY won a medal in sports day!
We got pet turtles too

Sometimes I pray we can repeat 2011 but I would like to repeat it as aged 12 rather than 6

7 2015

2015 was the best year for me personally. I had the best school year ever (late 5th grade, which was AMAZING, and early 6th grade). I became better at making friends, and music didn't completely suck (unlike most music from 2016 to the present). As for school, I had a terrific fifth grade year. I competed in their junior olympics against the district, I went to a camp for a field trip (it was AMAZINGLY fun), and I made tons of friends who I haven't seen since elementary school graduation (I was the only kid in the grade who didn't go to the same middle school, that was the only bad thing of 2015). Sixth grade was also cool, but that went in to 2016. Overall, 2015 was the best year for me personally.

This year is my favorite year. I don't know why but I like how the number it looks and I also had a some good things happened in this year. So I see how most people hated this year because there was a lot of bad things happened this year in entire world, like there was a mass shootings everywhere, Satoru Iwata and the wrestlers, Dusty Rhodes and Roddy Piper were passed away, and there was a Paris Attack. So it's really disappointing how people claims that 2015 is the worst year.

So even if you dislike my comment, that's fine. But there are some people who had a good time and liked this year, like me. So you need to be accepted even if you hate this year.

I am very disappointed that this year had so many hate, it was one of my favorite years! I see how most people don't like this year, because there were a lot of bad things happening this year in the world! Such as mass shootings, Satoru Iwata, the wrestlers such as Dusty Rhodes and Roddy Piper died, and there was a terrorist attack in Paris. So in my opinion 2015 wasn't the best year in the world, but it was a great year for me, because there are people who had a great time and liked this year like me!

2015 is really one of the better years of the 2010s. It was also the last good year for me. This was also the year I graduated middle school and it was also the point that my childhood ended. I really had a lot of good memories and in my personal opinion it's better than 2017. I guess I can also say that 2015 is the best year of the 2010s next to 2012. I'm sorry for anyone who doesn't agree with me but it's my opinion.

8 2013

2010's ranking time
#10 - 2011: I despise this year so much, nonstop bad luck was happening to me, so many chores and so much homework, no free time for me, trashy music, a hellhole
#9 - 2010: Was a decent year at first, but became a total dumpster fire
#8 - 2012: It's just not my year, honestly...
#7 - 2016: Hell, not as bad as the other 3 but lots of hell happened worldwide
#6 - 2015: I was sick at the start of the year, but I was fine after...
#5 - 2019: Not bad, actually quite good
#4 - 2017: Had good times that I never wanted to forget, good music. However, Fortnite and Harvey made me mad
#3 - 2018: Awesome year. High Hopes, Smash Ultimate, Super Mario Party, my trip to Colombo, Sri Lanka, Washington Capitals Stanley Cup, all these made me happy
#2 - 2014: Another year I never wanna forget. Nicki Minaj and Iggy Azalea was bad, but the rest of the music this year was good. Trainwreck 1979, Uptown Funk, My Songs Know What You Did In The Dark, NOW That's ...more

Well to be honest this year wasn't good. 2013 was the year that changed EVERYTHING and declining the world, the civilization, and humanity. This year was an aftermath of 2012 'end of the world'.

I understand why a lot of people hated this year (multiple terrorist attacks, hurricanes, discountinued games and T.V. shows... The list goes on)

But this was surprisingly one of the best years of my life! I got my first gaming PC and got hooked to video games, joined countless communities made really nice online friends gained some popularity for many of my creations in different video games like Minecraft servers, Roblox games, garry's mod scp containment mod for the first time ever I felt like I belonged some where! In the middle of the year my grandpa got a serious knee injury whille he was driving to church but that only made me happier cause he then decided to move in with us in our basement so we could take care of him :) and later that year my brother got married. Finally I was at my peak in school got really good grades, was considered the popular kid for the first time in my life and had a good reputation amongst teachers! All in all an amazing year for me and will ...more

Might not have been for you people, but 2013 is hands down and forever will be the best year of my life. The music was for real hype that year, the TV and movies were as well, and to put the cherry on top, I went on a cross country road trip from my home in Indiana and did a complete circle around the West Coast! Hell yeah!

9 2005

Well its kinda good and the rest of it was bad because I peed in my pants a lot and it was the embarrassing moment of my life and I was only in kindergartent at that time.

I was born
Great music came out that year
They were some problems but it was an awesome year
YouTube
Facebook's First Birthday!
Club Penguin
Great T.V. Shows
Other great years include 2007,2011,2012,2015(although many may disagree)and 2017

This was the best year in the world many good things came out like Doom 3 for the original xbox Quake 4 King Kong the movie etc.

The world became an amazing place for once...I was born! And YouTube was created on 2005, so...ya know, I actually HAVE a YouTube channel...Random Pete

10 1989

This was a very important year and a lot of good stuff happened. Why is 1945 all the way down at #56? One of the worst and most deadliest wars ever ended that year!

It was a great year. The Berlin Wall fell, giving East Europeans the freedom to go to West Europe and vice versa, pop culture was great, and the Simpsons first aired (and it was at its best). I wish I was born in 1989.

And for those of you who think that this year sucked just because Taylor Swift was born, grow up! She may have come to the world, but at the time, we did not know she would end up being a terrible pop singer she is today.

Fall of the Berlin Wall. Wave of Democratic Revolutions and reforms in Europe leading to the collapse of the Soviet Bloc. Truly an amazing year.

1989 was beneficial because the Berlin Wall came down, the riots in China stopped, and the world was starting to be prosperous again.

The Contenders
11 1969

To be honest, I think 1969 should be #1 because you know, Woodstock and importantly, first man moon landing. The music in late 60s was still great compare to 2010s ~ 20s music.

Don't forget the excitement of watching the build up to the moon landing with the earlier Apollo missions in 1969. Also Concords first flight, Simon and Garfunkel's Bridge over Troubled Waters as well as Woodstock. Also the first microchip and ARPANET. We thought science and technology would solve all our problems back then and why not with all this going on? Also the year Star Trek was first shown in the on UK T.V.. Great year to be 11/12 (like me) with the future looking so bright.

This has to be the best year. It is interesting how on all of these 'opinion' sites the younger generation choose only those years that they remember and ignore anything that actually happened? Do they still teach history in schools?

The pinnacle of human scientific achievement, the moon landing.
The pinnacle of human artistic/musical achievement, Woodstock.
Its all been downhill from there.

12 2002

It makes me feel good to see 2002 near the top, not just because it was the year I was born in, but the fact that it seemed like a great year in general. Even though most people were still recovering from 9/11, there were a lot of neat stuff that happened that year. Great movies, great T.V. shows, great video games, Nickelodeon and Cartoon Network were at their peak in quality, you name it!

The year I was born! There were also lots of great T.V. shows out there, great games, great music, and lots of other great stuff! I think this should be number 1 (although if time travel ever existed, I might go back to 2000 and see what it was like).

My Opinion:

1999: Born

2000-2003: Good

2004-2008: My Favorite Years! (nothing happened)

2009: Sucked

2010: Was Bad too

2011-2012: They were okay!

2013: Bad year, I had a very mean teacher

Early 2014: Bad, but still memorable

Mid 2014-2015: It was okay!

2016-Present: Awful!

I was born, Eminem Show was released, Grand Theft Auto: Vice City. Spiderman's debut and much more.

13 2004

This was the best year of my life. I was 9 and the world was my oyster. Sure I was a SPED being systematically oppressed but boy was it fun.

T.V. was way better than it is today. Like the cartoons where so lit! Not even the cartoons. But just it all.

Games where way better to.

Great year for movies, music, T.V., animation. (of course there are some stinkers just like every year). Plus, the Red Sox won their first world series in 86 years.

My favorite game of all time was released this year, called Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas. A lot of good rap music like College Dropout, Encore, Madvillainy, etc.

My Updated Opinion:

1999: Born

2000-2003: Good

2004-2008: My Favorite Years! (Nothing happened)

2009: Sucked A Lot

2010: Was Bad too

2011-2012: They were okay!

2013: Bad Year, I had a very mean and strict teacher

2014: Uh...

2015: Uh...

2016: Sucked

2017: what Happened!

14 2009

I got to give 2009 some credit here. It is very underrated and I'm pretty sure some of you agree. To be honest with y'all, compared to 2019, 2009 was the better year music wise and of course life was simpler. Just to give 2009 credit, I'm putting this up here.

Good movies, like Inglourious Basterds. This year was the best year for me because so much great things has happened! Got my video game console for the first time and Assassin's Creed II came out...

I started gaining consciousness and was getting ready for preschool. life was awesome.
my thoughts on the years since I was born.
2006-born
2007-turned 1 so 10/10
2008-turned 2 and started remembering stuff so 9/10
2009-amazing, 10/10
2010-similar to 2009 so 9/10
2011-one of the best years ever! 10/10
2012-8/10
2013-7.5/10
2014-8/10
2015-7.8/10
2016-6/10, nothing special.
2017-0/10 SOOO BAD! (except one thing).
2018-9/10 my 6th grade and 7th grade school years were awesome in 2018.
2019-6.5/10 not the best but not the worst. I turn 13.

2009 was and O.K. year, but I loved it. 2009 is the second best year for music right behind 2006, and as I was very young I don't remember much, however from what I re-call, it was great.

15 2006

The best year because
Superman Returns came out
Taylor Swift wrote her favorite song Tim McGraw
X-Men The Last Stand
Music
Movies
Video Games

When It was September I didn't want the year to end this will always be my favorite year! The best year ever in the world!

Great year for rock music in my opinion, because my favourite album came out that year, One-X, which is from Three Days Grace, and it was also the year Evanescence, another one of my favourite bands, released their album The Open Door.

2006 - born
2007-2009 - too young too remember
2010 - 7/10
2011 - 8/10, Osama bin Laden died which was very noice
2012 - 9/10, I handled the olypmic torch
2013 - 8/10
2014 - 1/10 hell, Dashcon happened, MLG compilations were flooding the internet and I got 3 isolations at school
2015 - 7/10, much better then previous year however Justin Bieber topped the charts at the end of the year which was sad.
2016 - 9/10 several great family events happened this year.
2017 - 2/10 Trump became president
2018 - I don't know
2019 - I don't know

Yes I honestly agree the was my favorite year because in preschool I knew my best friend had good times I wish we can go back to this year. This year is the best 10/10 In the whole universe!

16 1999

The year I was born in and the year the Euro was put into circulation. My soul goes out to Europe particularly the UK because of Brexit. Hope they can figure it out. By the way, I'm a South African.

The year the world got Tom Cruise playing a sex guru. Probably the best performance of his career, I might add.

The year that my favorite T.V. show, SpongeBob SquarePants, aired!

I was born that year, and so much magical things happened.

17 2014

It was cool and I had the best christmas at 2014 and I got a lot of straight and I got a brand new ps4 as a christmas present and I will never forget that year.

My third favorite year still better than 2011 because in 2011 Fourth Grade ugh the worst thing ever this is better than 2012 2016 and 2017 best year ever The LEGO Movie was my favorite movie ever this year rocks! My first favorite year was 2006 second 2010 In my opinion this is the best year!

Best year ever in my opinion. Best year for sports, best year for music and it was a great year for video games. And also I had so much fun on that year. I really want to go back there.

This was one of the best years for movies. We got Whiplash, Captain America: The Winter Soldier, Guardians of the Galaxy, Edge of Tomorrow, and so much more.

18 2018 2018 (MMXVIII) was a common year starting on Monday of the Gregorian calendar, the 2018th year of the Common Era (CE), the 9th year of the 2010s decade, the 18th year of the 21st century, and the 18th year of the 3rd millennium.

This year was so good better than these 2 trash years 2017 and 2016. I got to see my family which I haven't seen in flippin ages. Also went to Phillipines and loved it there seeing my family and stayed up for the hole night partying and going to a tropical island. In the World Cup my team did so good but lost against Croatia. It was also a hot year in England since it was cold over the past few years. I got a laptop for myself. And Rockstar finally made an awesome game better than Fortnite and Grand Theft Auto. Also Treyarch made the best battle royale game on black ops 4.

2009-2013: Good music ( counting stars, roar, I gotta feeling etc.) but horrible years for my homeland, Greece.
2013-2015: Good
2015: Another bad year for Greece
2016: Liked some of the music ( Hello, Closer). Medium year
Winter 2017: Great
Rest of 2017: worst year of my life
Worst period of my life: summer 2017-autumn 2018
Autumn 2018: I feel good for the first time since 2013.
Winter-Spring 2019: Excellent, but too much homework.
Autumn 2019: Wasn't it too hot?
2020: No words.

Ugh 2018 was no good for me... Although my school year was great in this year, there was lots of rubbish stuff. Music was rubbish (especially mumble rap), my grandmother AND one of my uncles died, I was really unlucky with a lot of things in this year, and of it was just FORTNITE FORTNITE (it was very overrated in 2018 to be honest). So, WORST YEAR EVER!

2018 was a good year, everything was so good. Then 2019 had to screw everything up, and 2020 was okay at the very beginning but it went downhill in March

19 2016 2016 (MMXVI) was a leap year starting on Friday of the Gregorian calendar, the 2016th year of the Common Era (CE) and Anno Domini (AD) designations, the 16th year of the 3rd millennium, the 16th year of the 21st century, and the 7th year of the 2010s decade.

2016 was the worst year ever. I am so glad it is last on this list. 2016 was when the Powerpuff Girls reboot was made (it really wasnt all because of that) Then the Zika Virus came to the world and killed over 5,000 people and what made things worse was when Hurricane Matthew came, and destroyed a lot of people's lives, then came a truck driving into a crowd on Bastille Day and killed people too. 2016 was when a alligator pulled a two year old into a lake at Disney World, and killer clowns on Halloween were horrifying kids, then came Brexit, another awful disaster, then we lost lots of good people. Donald Trump got elected when Bernie Sanders should've then a Italian earthquake came to the world too. Oh, and let's not forget the Paris attack and the anti-Trump protests killed more people. 2016 was when the floods in London came too and the olympics plagued up more and more. I was SO HAPPY when 2017 came! 2017 was better and much MUCH nicer!

I disagree. I actually hated 2016 for various reasons like celebrity deaths, terrorist attacks, terrible presidential nominees, my father's death, a child killed by an alligator, innocent police officers killed in the line of duty, the Zika Virus, and many others. However, there were some things from 2016 I enjoyed like a new T.V. show called American Housewife, going to Disneyland, finally having Season Passes to Six Flags, and the unseasonably cool weather (don't judge, I live in a warm climate). I felt like 2016 was overrated.

Too low for what it is had to vote. Celebrities die every year. Terrorist attacks also every year. And zika? Really?! Who even remembers zika it wasn't even that bad if you wanna see really bad viruses from the third millennium/twenty first century see viruses like the apparent fortunately eradicated sars-cov-1, the reoccurring every three years (hopefully not this one because we can't deal with two viruses) mers-cov and finally the ongoing sars-cov-2. See what I mean now? Honestly I don't get the hate for this year I guess the whole of the top tens website had bad luck this year somehow. Honestly though the other lists are called worst in history not of your life. I don't like 2013, 2017 etc. But they are not factually bad unlike years such as 1918, 1939 etc. See though what really grinds my gears is it took so much effort on the worst years in history list to get 2020 to be the runner up of the list and not 2016 the two are not comparable. Zika according to what I have found didn't ...more

Dude, 2016 is so underrated like jeez man. This year was the best year for Memes, Everything was so interesting like the Election, No Man's Sky, Youtube Drama. Just Jeez, The events that where "bad" in 2016 Honestly made the Year Better.

2017 was a pretty good year also, but 2016 is so low I had to vote.

20 2021 2021 (MMXXI) was a common year starting on Friday of the Gregorian calendar, the 21st year of the third millennium, the 21st year of the 21st century, and the 2nd year of the 2020s. 2021 is scheduled to host most major events that were originally scheduled for 2020.

Before disaster struck worldwide, I was gonna take this moment to recognize any positives that occurred. But due to the facts of these horrific tragedies, there will be absolutely no mentioning of 2020 in general. 2021 shall mark the first step of the healing process.

For me personally this has been a lot better than 2020. The coronavirus pandemic has toned down a bit, and I was able to travel by car around Southern Sweden, which was a nice semester!

I absolutely despise this year. My sister and grandma died this year, and so many bad things are happening. Even if the vaccines are out, I still think this is worse than 2020

Only 6 days in and it already sucks for me. The 2020's are just going to be miserable all around.

21 1968

1968 wasn't that good. There was an intense civil unrests over racism in America. MLK and RFK got assassinated. Plus Vietnam war were still ongoing. How is this year good?

The year great movies like Yellow Submarine and 2001: A Space Odyssey were released. Check them out if you haven't!

Martin Luther King Jr.'s assassination. Pretty tragic though. That is also when The Archie Show came out.

Should be #2. People were happier less greedy they talked socialized. It was better even though I was not born yet:

22 2019

This one was awesome. I know Covid started but it didn't get bad until the next year... this was great, on the other hand. I went on multiple amazing vacations, (Grand Cayman Island, A big trip through Southwest U.S.A. (Vegas, Grand Canyon, Monument Valley, Zion, etc., P.E.I., and at the end of the year Costa Rica), and did a lot of fun stuff.

My life in the 2010's so far
2010- amazing 9/10
2011- awesome 8/10
2012- a little underrated year 9/10
2013- mediocre, not as awful as 2014 but the only bad thing was 3nd grade 5/10
2014- awful because too many bad things were happening like my grandmother died, my mom was mean to me, so many terrible trends, adventure time was no longer good, I didn't get to see Jessica anymore, and I had too many bad school days. The only things that I miss in 2014 are my vacations and watching watch mojo videos 2/10
2015- bad at first but got better later on 7/10
2016- bad 4/10
2017- best year ever! Way too underrated year
2018- decent 7/10
2019- so far both good and bad things are going on. So I have to say that this year is okay 6/10 (SO FAR)

In my opinion, although the world is getting better, not every single individuals are. Both bad and good happen at the same time. Brexit, Trump, and yellow vest protest. On the other hand, Steve Pinker noted that crime is falling, life expectancy is rising and poverty is only about 10% of the population much much less than only 20, or 30 years ago.

One of a few good things about 2019 is that New England Patriots won another Super Bowl in February. On the hand, there's another shooting that happened on December 10: 6 people were killed at a grocery shop and cemetery at Jersey City, NJ.

23 1991

The Soviet Union dissolved, ending the Cold War for good. There was also a total solar eclipse that occurred on July 11th of that year. In addition, Nickelodeon made history with its debut of its first three Nicktoons (Doug, Rugrats, and Ren & Stimpy).

The Soviet Union, America's worst enemy, split up and became Russia, and communism fell around the world.

The Greatest Childhood Movie of All Time Came Out in 1991... My Girl. It had Macaulay Culkin and Anna Chlumsky. Such a Classic! Also Sonic the Hedgehog Came out that year too!

Ozzy Osbourne- no more tears, Alice in chains- Facelift, Metallica- Metallica(black album), Pearl Jam-Ten, Nirvana- Nevermind, the list goes on.

24 1995

Toy Story was released this year, which was not only the first Pixar film released in theaters, but it was also the first ever wholly computer generated film. Microsoft also made history with the release of Windows 95, and the dot-com bubble started. Likewise, the DVD was invented.

1995 was a great year. There were many great games like: Mortal Kombat 3, Earthworm Jim 2, Super Mario World 2: Yoshi's Island, Street Fighter Alpha, e.t.c.
But some bad things happened too. For example, Eazy-E died.

Pokemon is one of the stupidest trends ever.

The Oklahoma City bombing happened!

25 2003

Definitely the best year...
I was only 1, but so much good music was released this year (and one of the last years good music was made). Bands like Three Days Grace, Linkin Park, Stained... you get the point, released amazing albums. After 2003, music slowly began to decline

2003
Was the year for me
Sequel comes to the Two Towers
MIB 2 seems to last four hours
Brings us the best X-men yet
Calling All Angels on cassette
OutKast makes us get up and dance
And X-men : Evolution aires in France...

This is the worst year. Gregory Peck died, and then my favorite actor, Charles Bronson, died.

This was the year the Yankees walked off game 7 of the ALCS on my birthday.
