The world didn't end. People wasted too much money.

How the heck is that at the Top? That is when it all began to go downhill.

2 1960s

My favorite decade along with the 1990s in the decade better cartoons Scooby doo came out in 1969 and artist like The Archie's also the song monster mash Sonny and Cher were introduced Godzilla movies of the Japanese cinema Elvis Presley great movies and marvel and DC comics shows were the best bring back every decade or a time travel by the way! - Lordvader3500

I am really interested in this whole era mainly because of the music. The music is amazing! I love Lesley Gore, The 4 Seasons, Beatles, Archies, beach boys and so many more. Movies were good! I love to listen to my grandparents tell me stories to what it was like to be a teen back then! - Cartermd

Ah yes. Many great things happened in the 60s. James Bond movies, The Beatles, The Rolling Stones, Space travel, England winning the world cup, my mum and dad being born etc. - IronSabbathPriest

I mean what a about the Missile Crisis people, Kennedy saved us!

The 80s is a seminal decade and I think it is the most fun a healthy decade of them all.

4 1990s

This is my favorite decade I was born in the year 2000 even though I wasn't born yet
Obviously there were so many good things music cartoons video games first person shooters like Doom Wolfenstein 3D Quake etc. Shania Twain there were better music and songs better movies too! Jurassic Park came out Batman TAS Superman TAS were the best T.V. shows ever and the movie Star Wars Episode I The Phantom Menace was made a lot of good things in the 1990s better than the late 2010s almost everything now is trash! - Lordvader3500

I quite like the 90s. Around the time modern technology came to being. - IronSabbathPriest

It was the best decade

A lot of my favorite things came in this decade - SNES games like Super Mario World, N64 games like Super Mario 64 and Zelda: Ocarina of Time, as well as the return of Star Wars (even though the only one that came out in this decade was the worst one - yes I'm talking about episode 1) and even my favorite T.V. show, Seinfeld! This one may not have had the great things that have come from inbetween 2000 and 2018, like Super Mario Sunshine, Galaxy, or Odyssey nor even Star Wars episodes 7 and 8, BUT STILL,1990 is the best decade yet! Most people like the 80s better, because that decade was pratically the birth year of Nintendo and Star Wars episode 5, but there were a lot more good things that came in the 90s!

5 1950s

Andy Pandy, Bill and Ben, The Wooden Tops - Watch With Your Mother. My mum was a little kid then. She said she remembered Watch With Your Mother.

6 2010s

Every decade before the 2010s were bad. The 2000s had 9/11 and the middle eastern wars e.g. Iraq. The 1990s had the fall of Yugoslavia. The 1980s had a brutal part of the Cold War. The 1970s had the Oil Crisis. The 1960s had the Cuban Missile Crisis and the Vietnam War. The 1950s had the Korean War and was the dawn of the Cold War. The 1940s had WW2 and the 1930s had the lead up to it. The 1920s had the Great Depression and the 1910s had WW1. Before that, the life expectancy was really low. So, unless that Area 51 thing happens, the 2010s is the best decade.

One of the worst generations. Donald Trump, horrible music, modern SpongeBob, Fortnite, the death of Stephen Hillenburg, Tide Pod Challenge, fidget spinners, dab, and the most disliked video on YouTube: YouTube Rewind 2018!

I'm tired of people saying this is the worst decade ever their is no worst or best decade ever all decades have pros and cons at least there was no world war 3 in the 2010s and we also have some helpful technology so quit getting brainwashed with the nostalgia!

Music from the 2010s wasn't really that good. But the best part about the 2010s was that the technology finally advanced!

7 1970s

The best music - Queen, David Bowie, Pink Floyd, T.Rex, Brian Eno etc - and amazing fashion. Also the school system was a lot better then.

Great music and good fashion, good movies like star wars and jaws.

It was easier to get a good job and get into the military now you have to jump through hoops everything was more cheap and chill
