Best Years In History
The Top Ten
Why is 2000 the best year? Because:
-new millennium (duh! )
-PS2 was released
-Nothing really bad happened that year
-I was born
-and many more
2005 comes really close, however.
"Nothing really bad happened that year" ARE YOU KIDDING ME? The worst American president since Herbert Hoover was elected. What do you mean "Nothing bad happened" - B1ueNew
This year was great but I wanted to rate the other years starting on 2004.
2004 - Great 7/10
2005 - Amazing 9/10
2006 - Awesome 8/10
2007 - BEST YEAR EVER! 10/10
2008 - Meh 5/10 Not the best year but not the worst either.
2009 - Bad 2/10 I think this was the start of the fall like Michael Jackson died and a flu was on that year.
2010 - Terrible 1/10 This year was not a good year at all but its not the worst.
2011 - Good 6/10 Things were starting to get better.
2012 - Meh 5/10 In this year it was so hot!
2013 - Good 6/10 A little underrated year.
2014 - Bad 2/10 I was NOT a fan of this year, I got sick, Breadwinners premiered and it was the last time I went to my swimming class.
2015 - Terrible 1/10 I can't even say why I hate this year.
2016 - Good 6/10 WAY TOO UNDERRATED AND OVERHATED!
2017- WORST YEAR EVER! 0/10 There was NOTHING good about this year, there was the Las Vegas shooting, Hurricane Harvey, Donald trump becomes president, Harvey ...more
Great year. The only year of the 2000's with a strong economy, the beginning of the millenium, the year of the dragon, a leap year, and I could go on and on.
Why? Y2K could have actually happened in this year. - JoeBoiV 51 Comments
It was awesome because like we had new Technology like smart phones and good computers, but it wasn't a problem with people being glued to them and our life didn't revolve around Technology. Probably best year of my life so far, 2012 comes very close but this year was special because he music was better and the world was a better place.
Everyone was creative and different
It just had a positive energy to it, I was 10 then but I could feel that the world was the best place to live in and lots of good stuff happened to me like graduating middle school with an A
This was the peak of everythingV 37 Comments
Best Year ever
WWE ruthless aggression is born
Brock Lesnar And John Cena Debuts

Music was different then that new s***
Justin Bieber weren't famous
It was all different
Nintendo Gamecube was released
The Rock VS Hollywood Hulk Hogan Wrestlemania X8
Beginning of the competition between the Gamecube vs OG Xbox and vs PS2
Best Game for Gamecube in 2002: Sonic Adventure 2 Battle Memories
And plus Music was the best on that year
Spidermab was released on that year and so did Harry potter and the Chamber of secrets Star was 2 Attack of the clones and 8 mile was released on that year
THIS YEARS WAS A MIND BLOWING YEAR FOR ME for the win laugh out loud
This was the best year ever I was born in 2002 too!
The Eminem Show & 8 Mile
Many more - Derpman45
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! - TopTenJacksonV 51 Comments
In December of 2007, I did not want 2007 to end. I went to both Disneyland and Sea World this year, so it was pretty good for you. - anonygirl
That's when lots of web series and cool, things happened like bratz we'll kinda
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! - TheDelBel
The year when Miku Hatsune and Vocaloid was born. This year was legendaryV 72 Comments
The year when I was born and mighty boosh T.V. series and radio series came out. The best magical year.
Spider-Man 2, Grand Theft Auto San Andreas, burnout 3, Harry Potter and the prisoner of azkaban, the Incredibles, shrek 2, halo 2, half life 2, metal gear solid 3 that year was the best - Alxg_mez
This year was great in my opinion! I was born and..._. Actually, that's the only good thing I can think of right now... - FuffleyandPeetah
It’s obviousV 53 Comments
The year of Fight Club and The Matrix. And I was born that year
I was born that year, and so much magical things happened.
The year I was born.
What? The shooting at Columbine and the Y2K scare happened this year, not very good. - JoeBoiV 22 Comments
The world ended in this year and now we're all ghosts! Ha ha ha!
What man if the world ended I wouldn't have heard about most rappers and this site. - AlphaQ
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.
Um the best year like ever creepers I mean creepers you guys are so weird I mean 2012 was the best 1. Because I am not stupid like you guys.2. Because it was like the best year ever.
Um the worst tear like ever creeper I mean creepers you guys are so awesome I mean 2012 was the worst 1 Because I am not stupid like you guys.2 Because it was like the worst year ever

Should be #2. People were happier less greedy they talked socialized. It was better even though I was not born yet:
This is the year my mom was born!
Does anybody remember the assassination?!V 4 Comments
Even though I lost 3 cats that year, I thought 2011 was a great year for me. I went to Yosemite, Six Flags (I went several times that year), and Disneyland that same year. And plus, I had a best friend. I respect your opinion if you do not like 2011. - anonygirl
Best year ever for me. I met my girlfriend. I traveled the world. Best marks in school ever. I practiced tennis really hard and successful. And everyone around me was also really happy. Everything was so nice for me in 2011. I like almost every year except 2013.
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.
I was born on that year and the packers won the super bowlV 28 Comments
Why mention woodstock? What about, umm, THE MOON LANDING
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.
The year scooby-doo where are you was born. - radon548
Woodstock and Moon Landing! - JoeBoiV 16 Comments
The year teenage mutant ninja turtles and lilo & stitch was out. - radon548

The Fall of the Berlin Wall and the start of the German reunification - a great year for millions.

The Simpsons first aired
The Simpsons premiered on December 17, 1989V 5 Comments
This is one of my best years (Along with 2006, 2010 and 2014) I actually like it Great year in my opinion because my favorite LEGO City sets of Airplane Airport sets came out in that year also my favorite things like New Super Mario Bros. DS was made back in May 15,2006 also the movie Superman Returns was made back in 2006 of June The best year in the whole planet I was just having a very good year I really want to go back to this year I was 5 but until October I was going to be 6 years old this is thousand times better than 2011 and 2015 this year rocks for me it was 11 years ago now were are in 2017 and I'm going to be 17 in October. 2006 rocks the best year on the planet!
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.
Can't believe it's been 10 years now...was a great year for me, still remember the Emo and Myspace times and having awesome friends...
The Wii came out this year, didn't it? - Pokemonfan10V 24 Comments
YEAH! The world got hippies, people having sex covered in mud, the summer of love, and some amazing music. - BeatlesFan1964
I was gonna vote for 1969 because of Woodstock, the Beginnings of the Internet, and the moon landing but you just can't beat the summer of love. It's sad that I was born in 2000, I would have loved those times.
Greatest music. Love hippies. Time when people were vastly more connected and having a buffoon like dumpy in the White House was unthinkable
Celtic won the European Cup. First British team to do so. We also won the all five competitions and completed the Quintuple.Over the course of the season, Celtic scored a world record 196 goals in the major competitions they took part in.V 4 Comments

The Dark Side of the MoonV 4 Comments
2013 was NOT the best year ever. 2014 was just a little better than 2013, but 2013 was AWFUL. Lots of games and stuff getting discontinued. Shows becoming a lot worse, UGH what an AWFUL year! - TopTenJackson
2013 was a pretty lousy year. Bombings, terrorists, hurricanes, and even some of my experiences that happened turned it into crap
2013 was my favorite year of my life so far. I was 11 and I'm now 15. I did so many adventurous things that year. I went to Wyoming and South Dakota for 3 weeks in the summer. 5th and 6th grade were amazing. I still played my Xbox 360. And a lot of good songs came out. And Minecraft became very popular.

This wasn't the best year for cinema but it was very good. Quentin Tarintino had two movie out. Pulp Fiction and Reservoir Dogs, Wes Craven brought us Scream, Desperado was considered the most violent movie on earth, Radiohead was rocking and rolling. George Clooney had not collided with the devil to ruin batman in 1997, the internet was made around 1996, Aids was getting treatments, Canada had a complete mix of the 70's 80's and 90's, and the twisted version of the little red ridding hood AKA Freeway, came out. There were so many awesome things that happened this year. The economy was doing great too. I think I was born in the wrong generation, this year was amazing!
Personally, I wish I could've been born this year...
Cartoon Network was getting started with shows like dexter

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!V 6 Comments
This year will be better THAN 2017 and 2016! Because I'm going to graduate high school, do my excuse in the summer, and on the month of August they will be no more high school & taking the school bus! So make 2018 beat up 2016 and 2017!
I'm not really sure how 2018 is worse than the previous years, if you look back at the early 2010s, I was not really a fan of the pop music at the time, and the worst events happened in the mid 2010s and 2017 such as the airport bombings in Belgium but the only thing that has happened in 2018 was school shootings such as Stoneman Douglas and natural disasters like Michael, yes I feel bad, but just because some people died or celebrities does not make it a bad year and I have seen less worse events this year than the other 2010s. - Call
This year has been great for me so far, except for February 14th when there was a shooting less than 15 miles from where I live. Oh and my insomnia hit its height in the last week, which ruined what would have been one of my favorite years. - allamassal
great yearV 27 Comments
You realize this is 1776, the year America was born, not 1976.
This is the year of The Declaration of Independence, Without it we wouldn't be here in the US today. Yet all of you are voting other years because you got to go to DISNEYLAND or got good grades or games and music. Grow up. Be thankfull for this year and how much it helped our country - B1ueNew

Best year ever!V 8 Comments
This is the worst year ever and it should not be on the list
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.
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! - Lordvader3500

To be honest: I don't see what's the hate about 2015, because this was such a green year for me & my Instagram! This was when I was first famous during spring break in my 9th grade year! During the summer I got my very first summer job & also my time going to the beach in Texas. During the fall which is October, a brawl occurred at my school, I went to fair, & I got a new bed. It's 2017 & it's feels like this year is already better than 2016. - DPS501
I see why people hate this year, terrorism, bombings, shootings, etc. But some of the good things were that our economy was pretty good, and it was a good year for movies, animation, video games, and some songs. There's good and bad to every year, even the year 2000.
What Why people like this year this year is an nightmare god damn 2015 Is worst than any other years.
In my opinion, I understand why people hated this year because of bad things that happened in the world. Like mass shootings, an attack on Paris France, and celebrities like Mayva Collins passing away. Mayva Collins was my favorite teacher that I actually watched her movie ever since she passed away. Man ever since 2015 ended, all I see is negative instead of good comments about this, because I had a great 2015. So if you don't like this year don't say nothing!V 34 Comments

This was my year. Everything I did was very memorable, and all my sports went well. (Mainly Federer winning the French Open and Wimbledon. )
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...
This year was great for me! I went to Disney World, and that was when I was I in Kindergarten. But the only bad thing about this year was me getting bullied on the bus - FuffleyandPeetah

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.
I hope so, it's my graduation year!
Ranking years of the 2010's from best to worst so far:

1984 Detroit tigers won the world series reagan was elected among everything else. That meant something in the world. Best year on earth
