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.
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

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
This Is My Opinion About Those 12 Years:
2007: Awesome! - Best year of my life!
2008: Pretty mediocre year, but it was not as bad as 2009
2014: Really bad!
2015: Things got 10 times worse!
2016: Things got 20 times worse!
2017: WORST YEAR EVER!
2018: I don't know so far
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!

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!
I got to have a lot of good dates that year with my girlfriend and we had a really good friend that year we were closer then ever with her back thenV 22 Comments

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.

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
Yeah, the year of Psychedelic rock, deserves to be on this list for sure. - RogerWatersfan1999V 3 Comments
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 was the 4th best year for music in the 70s
Why I like this year?
My mom was born.
Doraemon first anime was created.
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 Fall of the Berlin Wall and the start of the German reunification - a great year for millions.
The Simpsons first aired
Back to the future 2 released In 1989 - SpencerJC
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.

My first favorite year was 2006 second 2010 In my opinion this is the best year! - Lordvader3500
This year kinda sucked for me - flaggy0666V 19 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.
Steven Universe! - puglover2008V 16 Comments
To the other comment: The universe just started. There was no earth to ruin.
There was no human on Earth, so nobody could mess it up.
There were no humans to ruin the planet back then.
I was born this year! - SpiritualsavedboyV 2 Comments
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
What Why people like this year this year is an nightmare god damn 2015 Is worst than any other years.
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.
I wish 2015 came before 2017, because 2016 was the year of people dying and losing interest in to logos
Also, don’t come to me saying “People die every year” or “People lose interests every eye” because I know that
Pretty much the best year when it comes to video games, you've got: The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time, Crash Bandicoot: Warped, Tomb Raider III, Banjo-Kazooie, Spyro the Dragon, Half-Life, StarCraft, Grim Fandango, Sonic Adventure, Oddworld: Abe's Exoddus, F-Zero X, Turok 2: Seeds of Evil, MediEvil, Parasite Eve and many more.
Movie-wise, you've got: Saving Private Ryan, The Truman Show, The Big Lebowski, There's Something About Mary, A Bug's Life, The Wedding Singer, The Waterboy, Rushmore, Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas, Pleasantville, Mulan and many more.
Television-wise, you've got: Friends, That 70's Show, Seinfeld, The Simpsons (back when it was brilliant), Whose Line Is It Anyway? (this was it's first year), The X-Files, The Powerpuff Girls, Sabrina the Teenage Witch, Frasier, The Drew Carey Show, Buffy the Vampire Slayer, ER, Pokemon (back when it was great), Everybody Loves Raymond, Pinky and the Brain and many more.
Music-wise, you've got: Fastball: ...more
After almost 20 years I have never felt the energy and the atmosphere that I felt that year. Now 2017 is reminding me a little again so let see 2018!
Culturally great year- so many good films and great music. Definitely should be higher on this list
My school had a shooting on that year. - PanthersFTWpatriotsFTLV 7 Comments
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

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 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
This year will be better than 2016, it just will be. - 50V 9 Comments
