Top 10 Worst Decades In History

What do you think is the absolute worst decade of all time?
The Top Ten
1 1930s

There are too many nostalgiatards in this site. They complain about 2010s just because of bad pop and rap music. Oh mean! I am not a fan of the most of the mainstream songs but this is getting too far. How does pop music is much worser than Famine, poverty and wars? They are blind and doesn't know the history. They say 2010s sucks because of the bad music, technology, politics and games. Oh mean! Wars and depression are much worser. Nostalgiatards should go back in the 1930s and they will suffer.

Oh my God, you people are PATHETIC — voting 2010's because you don't like the music or cartoons. Please, I would like to introduce the 1930's:
The Stock Market crashed. Everyone is in poverty, the Second Sino-Japanese War (mostly the Nanjing Massacre), World War II, civil wars in China and Spain, the Holodomor (6-9 million Ukrainians dead thanks to a famine), and a lot of other bad things too.
Yes, there are bad things about the 2010's too, but it doesn't compare to having another World War happen and everyone being in poverty.

2 2010s

This Decade Eats! Here's why...

2010-We were STILL recovering from The Great Recession, many small businesses basically ended.
2011-Most of the entertainment world was recycled stuff...especially in the movie world! Then we had Occupy Wall Street!
2012-This was probably the pinnacle of the 2010s because 2012 was supposedly the end of the world (I wish)!
2013-The Great Recession ended...but we had to rebuild the damage that it left us!
2014-The riots in Ferguson, Missouri separated many people more than ever. That, and Robin Williams died that year.
2015-The escalation of shootings and movements.
2016-Donald Trump as our president and a lot of celebrity deaths in one year!
2017-Hurricanes destroying America, probably even more so than Hurricane Katrina!
2018-That year was basically a Celebrity Witch Hunt and the Me Too Movement!
2019-You can't go anywhere without offending someone!

And from my perspective...the 2010s eats for me, here's why...

2010-I had to give my parents money because they were broke all the time.
2011-This was a better year for me, despite losing my aunt.
2012-This year was okay as well...except for my brother's girlfriend at the time!
2013-My ex-pastor was caught out there and my grandfather's house was turned-over to the bank!
2014-I was recovering from the year before, but going to a trade school helped.
2015-I had no summer adventure and my brother and his girlfriend took-over the place I'm living at!
2016-Though I saw the Cavaliers win it mom died suddenly!
2017-My new pastor changes everything at the church I work at and my brother went in probation!
2018-This was another okay year...too bad nothing stayed.
2019-My hours at my job are cut, I'm pressured to move-back home, and my father isn't doing well!

3 okay years, 7 bad years...2010's is Hell on Earth for me, for many, and for the world!

3 1910s

Dear visitor, stop spam voting it. It should be #3, but the spam is getting really annoying.

World War 1 therefore its bad because it killed millions of people.

Come on, seriously how is this not number 1!

The sinking the Titantic happened and there was World War I

4 1940s

Little Austrian man with a mustache killed a bunch of people in Europe. His Russian counterpart also massacred a ton of innocent civilians.

Germany in those times why the hell did they vote for Hitler.
Hitler and the Nazi's ruined the world in World War 2.
People vote for 2010s because the music is not their taste or 2016 famous people died.
The only thing you'd like about being a 1940s kid is that you finish school when you are twelve years old!

Nostalgiatards, Do you want to know about 1940s? Holocaust, World War II, Colonization of Japan in Southeast Asia, Genocide of Jews, Pearl Harbor Attack and Bombing of Hiroshima and Nagasaki are the main highlights of this decade. Do you think that Fortnite and Justin Bieber are much worser than events that I mentioned?

5 1860s

This was the beginning of the lawyers taking over the government, the decade of "the ends justify the means", and the true beginning of myself before anyone else. The decay of civility, personal responsibility, and the few deciding for the many begins with the 60's.

Gold rushes happened, it was all a struggle to become rich. It all happened in most developing countries, such as America, South Africa, Australia and New Zealand. It was also extremely pointless.

The Civil what and the KKK formed. I hate nostalgia elitists so much. You think the Civil War is better than pop music? If so. Get help please.

6 1340s

Are you kidding, you vote the 21st century over technology, music, T.V., movies, cars and others. Grow up people and stop acting like babies!

This should be #1 especially when it comes to Europe being killed
Any year hasn't been this deadly besides ANY YEArs of War

The height of boubonic plague, responsible for more deaths than any other event in human history. Pair that with, religious persecution, and the fact that it was the dark ages. Yeah, 1340s was the worst!

This should be at the top. The 1930s were terrible but this was far far worse.

7 2020s

I feel sorry for those who are growing up in this decade. Those born 2012-now, they are 2020s children, stuck to glue with skibidi toilet and poppy playtime. This is probably the worst decade in modern history to be a child, nothing is kid-friendly, hotels are demolishing their family water parks and replacing them with adult only pools. Thank god my nephew was born in 2011 if he was born after he would have a bad childhood. Also people are weirder now. This decade is so awful, all the years in the 2020s (except 2021) can go to hell! So 2011 borns are the last ones to have many childhood memories from the 2010s, since 2017-2019 were great years for my nephew. Glad I got to raise my nephew before Covid-19. He was almost 9 when Covid-19 came. He said 2019 was the best year for him because that was the core of his childhood. I wouldn't want him to be born 2012-2013 due to his childhood being spent on a global pandemic that impacted the world in 2020. Also I am so glad I didn't graduate uni in 2020. Wow this decade has been hell for me! Now all of you must regret saying that they hate the 2010s, now people are changing their minds they miss 2010-2019 these days me too I was sick of the 2010s now I miss it

8 1350s

A lot of people died from the Black Plague during that time period. This should be number 1

This decade had the bubonic plague killing over 100- 200 million people. This should be number 1

The black plague!
Should be at the top

9 530s AD

Am I seriously the only comment for this decade? 530s are arguably known for being the worst decade of all time, specifically the year 536 being known for the 'worst year' in history. The Justinian plague hit, which was more damaging than the Black Death. The Black Death May have lost more lives due to larger population, but the Justinian plague may have wiped us out as we lost at least half the world population.

This is the decade with the worst year in history belongs.

10 2000s

Oh yeah like that's all that happened in the 2000s.
Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone film came out.
Dial up is dead
The Sims video games started.
Video games pick one Mario is Missing (90s) or Luigi's Mansion (2000s)
Pokemon Gen 1 was the 90s.
Windows Pinball was still around and the original minesweeper

...but I was entering the times of becoming a teenager.

Here's my opinion/timeline:

1999: Born

2000 - 2003: Awesome years! Best movies, best shows, best games and best music of the late 90s and early to mid 00s

2004 - 2007: Great years, but not as good as the earlier years, but still had a great childhood

2008 - 2012: These years were okay, things were starting to change a lot

2013 - 2014: Bad, things were starting to suck

2015 - 2016: Awful. Things were getting worse.

2017 - Present: $#! tt¥ music, movies, T.V. shows, etc.

The Contenders
11 1970s

And there were also a handful of bad teen idols. Donny Osmond is basically the 70s version of pre-puberty Justin Bieber and you can see the similarities. He has the same bowl cut, the same shrill, high-pitched girly voice and the same annoying songs.

My mom and dad won't shut up about how great this decade is when it's really not.

Nothing to do here. Almost all these 1990 - 2000 things you love today never existed yet.
Was never good. Never will

Rape culture was a thing, women's rights only existed on paper, and violent crime was abundant, and a lot serial killers thrived in this decade.

12 470s
13 1980s

glamorized serial killers, ghetto wars, Miami drug cartels, and Cold War fears peak like no other decade. Only real highlight came at the very, very end end when the Berlin wall came falling down, came falling down.

I suppose it was the year before the most hated pop star of the 21st century was born.
Most hated because of social media.

The biggest United States city was dangerous in the 80's and 70's and Ronald was a bad president.

14 1990s

When the Rwandan genocide happend the worst genocide in modern history and Osama bin laden attacked Tanzania. Both Oklahoma city bombing and columbine and the whole scandal with Clinton

Wow. We had the gulf war, LA riots, Waco siege, Oklahoma City bombing, Columbine, and a crappy politician who got impeached for a sexual act.

The Gulf War, rwandan genocide, LA riots, columbine, oklahoma bombings, etc. I don't like people who think the 90s were good just because Doom came out in '93 and "music was good"

15 1660s

The Black Death happened in 1665, then the great fire of London back in 1666, THEN we had the dreadful hurricane of 1667!
In conclusion, lots and LOTS of people got hurt.

16 1450s
17 1900s

The San Francisco Earthquake that killed over 3000 people.
This should be higher.

This should be either #1 or #2, An Earthquake in San Francisco killed over 3000 people!

This should be #2 or #3 at the most!

That decade started the San Francisco Earthquake

18 1770s
19 1640s

This is when the 30's year war was going on and eventually ended in 1648. It devastated Germany killing 1/2 of it's population. So much killing in this decade.

20 1020s
21 1800s
22 1780s
23 1950s

Not only were there too many parents impulsively having kids without much planning, but domestic abuse rates were through the roof! This decade has no right to be called less worse than the 2010s.

Think about it nostalgia-retards, you say the old days were better huh? Well, I'm disagreeing and have a lot of reasons.

First of all we live longer, don't you want to see your relatives for a longer time? There's also less racism, a lot of douches say the Kkk is better than rap music which is very immature of them. Finally games and movies have better graphics and stories. Grand Theft Auto is much more diverse than Tetrix. Music is also more advanced. You only had one or 2 genres in the past, although I like rap and pop I think there should be a miz of rap and pop and other genres.

Finally, get out of this list.
