Best Years In History

The Top Ten

1 2000

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.

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.

Ah, the early 2000's, when saying the word retarded was completely acceptable

366 days that year

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.

This year was absolutely amazing. I was still in elementary school, my parents were still together, my neighbors were still normal, my parents' friend who we were really close to was still alive, my dog Ted was still alive, the music that year was awesome, and that summer was the best summer of my life. the only bad things that happened were that my other dog Travis died, and my parents' other friend had a stroke right around this time and has been messed up in the head ever since. - MountainDewKid101

Everyone was creative and different

Best year of my life! Everyone was happy, I started to make friends, good music and video games, etc. It was an amazing time to be alive! - Aha223

I swear to God 2017 will be a thousand times better than 2016. - anonygirl

It's August 2017 (yesterday was my birthday 20th august) and for me this is the best years unlike the previous ones here why: I got new friends that are nice and respect opinion (unlike the old ones), at school I got promoted to 11th grade and more good things happened to me. - Xicor12

Well, the stock market is at an all time high and the US reestablished relationships with Israel (Thanks to Donald Trump). It may be a good year! We're only 28 days in though. Fingers crossed!

Economic boom, major advances in technology and fidget spinners help me concentrate in school.

9 2011

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.

I would say that this year is the best year in my life! ( although I am not born in this year) because all my favourite songs came out on that year! Actually my favourite year is 2009-2014 but I really relates to 2011 a lot! And that's why I loved this year!

2011 and 2012 were okay

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

The year I was born, and teen titans and finding nemo came out.

Because I was born then of course - TealBoyxx

I can't tell if it will be good or bad. However, I predict that it will be like 2017 with all the tension and hurricanes or it may just be different and awesome. - Call

To be honest 2016-2017 was terrible but I have hope that this year will be better - Randomator

Hopefully... - Q-Q

12 2006

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...

This was the best year of my life I was 5 and I was in prek it has been bast 12 years ago from today

14 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.

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!

This should have been #1. The Summer of Love occured during this year. No other years have done that. Hell ALL of the 60s were great. I know, I lived during that time. But 1967 was by far the best year. Flower power, those times have gone sadly.

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

Led Zeppelin's first and second albums, and also Beatles' Abbey Road were released!

17 1996

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

2pac died so... no. Putting aside Nas' - It was written and Jay-z's - Reasonable doubt that year was not good.
