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.

Halsey’s BADLANDS was the best thing that ever happened to me - lovefrombadlands

26 1989

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

Back to the future 2 released In 1989 - SpencerJC

The Simpsons first aired

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. - anonygirl

29 1995

Pokemon is one of the stupidest trends ever.


30 1776

You realize this is 1776, the year America was born, not 1976.

America was born into the world

Deep 70's! Rock and role! You wouldn't believe how good life was without the internet, and with great music and movies and other great entertainment.

31 1964

There was a big earthquake in Alaska that time so how is this the best year? - Q-Q

34 1984

1984 was with no doubt about the best year for movies we got ghostbusters terminator super girl the never ending story and the list keeps going on we also got amazing song and a good few games that are still fun to play with. Michael Jackson was in his prime and so much more if this isn't the best year ever I don't know what is ( we also got the gremlins and Indianna jones)

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

Reagan won in a landslide and the cold war was heating up, Ghostbusters was also released so that's good.

We got transformers this year

35 2014

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.

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.

The year I discovered my favourite website, before it was closed down in February 2015.

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...

My favorite year. Lots of great albums were made in this year that I love.

39 1979

Alien, Mad Max, Apocalypse Now, etc. An amazing year for movies.

40 2013

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.

Most underrated year.
