2 2010

I loved every year of my life, except 2012, I am having an awesome life and I enjoyed fun times and having amazing times, I only look at positives of each and every year and because of this, 2012 was the only bad year I ever had in my life because there was nothing that was really good that I could look at in 2012, therefore I hated 2012 with a burning passion, 2015 was the best year of my life so far even though 2015 will soon be dethroned by 2020 with being the best year of my life. - EpicTime9012

I Have 2 Jokes

Why did all the 2017 calendars look cool?
Because 2017 was a cool year.

Why were all the 2012 calendars thrown away?
Because 2012 was a garbage year. - EpicTime9012

I loved every year from 2009 - 2017, except 2012, I had great times in 2017 and 2017 is one of my favorite years so far and I enjoyed doing fun things in 2017. I also got to enjoy some fun activities in 2015 and I also loved the 2015 calendar too and I loved the calendar of 2015 because my B Day was on a Saturday in 2015. - EpicTime9012

I keep doing it because I just don't get why people love such a tragic year like 2012 and I don't feel like listing everything because there is just too many tragic things that happened in 2012, if you look up most tragic moments of 2012 then you'll see why 2012 was the worst year ever and all of these tragic moments happened throughout the year of 2012 and all of these tragic moments are bad enough to affect the whole year of 2012, thus making 2012 the worst year ever. - EpicTime9012

4 2012

2012 was the worst year ever, 2012 should be ranked dead last on this list, In 2012, the Costa Concordia Cruise sank, people, were scared of the end of the world, even I was, Trends were lame, 2012 was a boring year, I barely got to do anything in 2012, 2012 was a breeding ground of bad days, I had the worst day of my life so far in 2012, kids were killed in the sandy hook shooting, hurricane sandy was bad, the last 3 months of the year was very boring and stuffy, 2012 was the only year I ever had a bad year in, 2012 is the most overrated year ever, How could anyone love such a terrible and tragic year? , I hate 2012 with a burning passion, I hated 2012 so much that I was so happy when 2013 began because I knew that the worst year ever was over, I was so glad 2012 was over when 2013 began, I do not miss 2012 one bit, Nothing good really came out of such a garbage year, There was a shooting at a movie theater in Colorado, A person who was volunteering for a neighborhood killed a teen ...more - EpicTime9012

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

No, 2012 was the worst year ever, you're just saying that 2012 was a good year because of your personal life. - EpicTime9012

Good year because crime in U.S. were dropping
London has had Olympics
Lots of good music

I would rather Time travel to the Year 9012 than time travel to the year 2012 because 9012 would be a better year than 2012 anyway, A lot of good things would happen in 9012, unlike 2012. - EpicTime9012

5 2007

While this year did have some flaws (Terrible Alvin Movie) This year introduced the iPhone, Phineas and Ferb, and more - Maddox121

The year when Miku Hatsune and Vocaloid was born. This year was legendary

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

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

6 2011

Nope, it was TERRIBLE. Lot of tragic things happened on that year. Put that on lowest rank of this list. Ranking #6 is too damn high. - eugenexscell

2011 IS THE BEST! 2011 really changed my life and everything in that year for me was good! I praise 2011 for what it has done for me every single day. 2011's memories shall live on FOREVER! - TheMasterof2011

I disagree with that!
My thought of the 2010s
2010: Pretty bad 3/10
2011: Worst Year Ever -1/10
2012: decent 5/10
2013: best year 10/10
2014: great 9/10
2015: things stopped picking up but still good 6/10
2016: good 8/10
2017: sucks 1/10
2018: great 9/10
2019: meh 5/10

Why is this at 6? You know how many people died from the Japan tsunami? 15,981 people. There are literally people praying to their loved ones. Plus, I almost commited suicide in February 28. And everything was just MINECRAFT THIS MINECRAFT THAT MINECRAP! so WORST YEAR OF MY LIFE! - LUDEL

2011 is ranked at #6 because a lot of people voted for 2011 for the best years in history because they had an awesome year in 2011, thus making 2011 an awesome year in their opinion, for example, 2015 is the best year of my life as of 2019, so in this list, I voted for 2015 because 2015 was the best year ever as of 2019 in my opinion, the point of votable lists is for us to vote on topics based on our opinion and 2011 got the 6th popular vote in this list, thus making 2011 ranked at #6. These lists are democratic and they don't have to be ranked based on your opinion because that's what remixes are for, the point of remixes is for us to list things based on our opinion, for example, 2015 was the best year of my life as of 2019, so when I remixed this list, 2015 was ranked #1 for best years in history in the remix of this list that I made. - EpicTime9012

7 2002

Best Year ever
WWE ruthless aggression is born
Brock Lesnar And John Cena Debuts

And plus Music was the best on that year

THIS YEARS WAS A MIND BLOWING YEAR FOR ME for the win laugh out loud

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!

This was the best year ever I was born in 2002 too!

I agree with the person who said 2002 music was better. We got Get Busy! No wonder Anne Marie wrote a song about this year!
- TheDuttyGyal

9 2013

THIS IS THE BEST AND COOLEST YEAR EVER! Not a single year will ever be as good as 2013. It's a special kind of force who is in the year 2013 that makes it so legendary. Everyday was a combination of Christmas and Birthdays in 2013.

Favorite year overall. Everything was fun and happy and the music was amazing. The memories I made were amazing and unforgettable. And no matter how sad I was I always knew how to be happy again and it made me who I am today. If I could turn back time to any year it'll definitely be 2013. - Yoshiandaglover

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.

2019 was the worst year in human history, actually 13.7 billion years ago is the best! - maxwellli269

Cold war has came to an end,
Nothing majorly terrible here!

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

The Simpsons first aired

15 2005

Life was more simple, violence was lower, just a better time period to live

How was life more simple? 7/7/05... London terrorist attacks happened that year. Not an awful year but not the best either - Slither

I liked every year except 2011 and 2016 but other than that every other year was cool, especially 2014 - OnyxtheOcelot

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).

17 2009

I loved 2009 I was 4 years old I loved the Nickelodeon Disney television shows. Most of the music on the radio in 09, was amazing unlike today's music.

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. - TheMasterof2011

19 1969

The year Neil Armstrong landed on the moon, the Beatles were still a thing, In the Year 2525 was released. Awesome year. - TopTenTed

Why mention woodstock? What about, umm, THE MOON LANDING

The year scooby-doo where are you was born. - radon548

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.

20 1967

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

Even the fact that Jimi played at the monterey pop festivals that year makes it the best year in history. Too bad I was born over 30 years too late!

21 2014

2003: was born
2004 - 2007: too young to remember
2008: 7/10

2018: 10/10 BEST YEAR EVER!
2019: I don't know /10 - OnyxtheOcelot

This year everything felt right, I would do anything to be back to 2014

This is the worst year ever and it should not be on the list

2004-2008 too young to remember
2009: worst year ever! michael jackson died, nick got rid of their slime logo, spongebob was at his worst, etc.-9/10

2016: Sucked horribly bad. Almost as much as 2011! 1.9/10
2017: Stupid! 2/10
2018: Really awesome and nice! Was close to 2014 until stephen hillenburg died. but still. a nice year! ...more - LUDEL

22 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

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...

The year teenage mutant ninja turtles and lilo & stitch was out. - radon548

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

23 1973

Coolest movies ever made - Texas Chainsaw Massacre being 1 of so, so, so many... check it out on imdb. Picasso and Ziggy Stardust died. I was born.

It is the year cell phone was made.

The Dark Side of the Moon. Need I say more?

Atari created the Atari 2600, so I don't know about this year.
It was also the beginning of the Video Game Industry. - Kambochia12

Not the beginning. It really started in 1972 (if you're referring to HOME video games.)
The Atari 2600 was the first major success though. - Slither

27 2020

2020 the year populism starts to fade, the year we begin a new decade which means a new chapter. Although there has been Iran crisis, trade war and Australia bushfire, but the world is not getting worse. Definitely not.

I just looked up "Top ten years" and I clicked this out of boredom, I wont lie. Worth the click and every second of reading this. Its very interesting and I love the commentary.

This year just started, we don’t know if it’s good or bad just yet

2020 is automatically the best year ever because the leap day is on a Saturday in 2020. - EpicFace57012

I think this year is gonna be better than 2019. - maxwellli269

This was when the universe was created - WorldPuncher47592834

29 1776

This will always be in my top 10 favorite years for learning history about! - TyetheBlockhead

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

USA is not the best country, but some countries wouldn’t exist without the help of the USA, Because a lot of European countries after ww2 were poor or in destruction. The USA even helped Kuwait in the Gulf war (for some reason USA was involved, but still, Kuwait was saved).

30 1996

Let me see, why 1996 is just AWESOME:

- I was born
- Germany winning the European Championship
- A fantastic year for the music, many rock/metal bands I like were founded in 1996: Skillet, Nightwish, Sonata Arctica, to name a few...
- The Internet growing
- Nintendo 64

Just to name a few things.

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

36 2001

How can you love such a depressing year?
2001 was a really bad year because of the 9/11 attacks, That was a very tragic event that was so tragic that it affected the whole year of 2001, this made 2001 a bad year. I also heard that after the 9/11 attacks, people could not wait for 2001 to end. - EpicTime9012

The year that spongebob was at it's best, who's with me?

This year was good except the 9/11 attacks
