The year the greatest show in the universe began. LONG LIVE DOCTOR WHO!

MLK & the Equal Pay Act. come on guys, think about history as a whole. It's kinda selfish to just vote for the year you were born.

The video game industry is saved, Back to the Future was awesome.

And best of all Mario! He saved all the video games who could not like the Super Mario Bros. And all his friends

The NES was released in North America which completely saved the crash. Also, Nintendo is amazing.

I like Calvin and Hobbes - PanthersFTWpatriotsFTL

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.

Better with that technology! Now people are obsessed with phones and stuff like that and my opinion is that every year that's less than 2000 it's the best year

The worlds greatest year

Awesome I hope its number 1

Not a great year
The day the music died and I believe Elvis was drafted to the army this year - ThePerson

The birth of the Apple computer.

"I'm as mad as hell, amd I'm not going to take it anymore! " - BeatlesFan1964

The V of Doom came on T.V. that year so it may not have been a great year (especially for television productions).

Pros
Apple came to existence
Cons
Birth of the V of Doom, giving millions a nightmare - BorisRule

48 1988
49 1928

Everyone knows the 1920s were actually the best years ever. People just vote for the other ones because they were born that year. This website is not really accurate because the voters aren't making good choices.

Mickey mouse came out. Even though I don't like Mickey mouse. - PanthersFTWpatriotsFTL

Good year for Irish coin collectors. - computerfan0

50 2018

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

Well Florida just happened and I hate that da wae meme. - PanthersFTWpatriotsFTL

Great music, the Cold War was coming to an end, fashions were ridiculously entertaining, we still had payphones everywhere, didn't digest our news in 60 seconds and demand more immediately so we had time to think about what was happening...

And for me, this is the year in which my idea of 'the world' began to come into focus. Everything since then has been viewed, at least in part, through a 1987 lens. It's my baseline, and while I know that so much has changed for the better since then (medical advances alone will always make 'today' the best time to be alive) things have changed for the worse, too.

And I miss the days when the Pepsi logo looked like it did back then. When that changed, everything else seemed to begin to change, too. Silly, I know, but it's what sticks in my mind as the first step.

Appetite for destruction released
Joshua Tree released
Slippery when wet released
Hysteria released
Whitesnake (album) released
Girls Girls Girls released
$5.98 EP released
Hold Your Fire released
Skid row formed
Money for Nothing music video
Adventure of Link released
Mega Man released
Overall a good year - Brobusky

60 1965

Great year. Georgie Fame, the Kinks, the Beatles, Tom Jones, Unit 4+2, Sonny and Cher and the Seekers dominated the charts. The International Rescue team first popped up on our screens, cigarette adverts were banned on T.V., we had the Ipcress File, James Bond, you name it!

[From a guy who wasn't around then.]

The good:
Carnaby Street.
Makeover for the Canadian flag.
Very high purchasing power.
The Beatles.
Thunderbirds.
James Bond.
Terror attacks were almost unheard of.
People ate better.

The bad:
Vietnam was at a peak.
Winston Churchill and Mary (the Princess Royal) died.
City streets could look a bit skanky.

A bit of both:
UK motorways had no speed limits.
Many women were still housewives.
Social media was unimaginable.
Married under-25s were not uncommon.
