Top Ten Worst Days

The Top Ten Worst Days

1 September 11th, 2001 - 9/11 Attacks

Luckily I didn't live in New York. and I lived in texas. I wish I grew up in 1996-2016. but this one is the worst day of these years - ROBLOX Connor4808

This day is sad I learned about it in school today saw some videos on youtube about 9/11 can tell it was a bad day

I'm typing this on 9/11/15. This is a very sad day in American history, but is it really the worst day in world history? Absolutely not.

A little under 3,000 people died in 9/11, which sucks, but what about the events that started WWII, thus killing 6 million+ innocent Jewish people? What about natural disasters like the Japan tsunami (15,000+ dead), Haiti earthquake (100-316,000 deaths). Thumb me down all you want, but 9/11 just doesn't compare to those events. The reason it's #1 is because the majority of TheTopTens is American - ryanrimmel

I think people think it is because it was done by people, while the others were natural disasters. Even then, there's still the Hiroshima bombing. - djpenquin999

This was a really bad day, I was 2 years old when this happened, I wouldn't remember what I was doing, I remember learning about 9/11 in grade 10, after my class watched part of the world trade centre movie

2 September 3rd, 1939 - Britain and France Declare War on Germany

In dealing with Germany's invasion of Poland, instead of the Polish having to explain what happened in Danzig to the whole world, the British and French didn't care about the issue and proceeded to invading Germany because they didn't think anything reasonable about the Germans.

so many people died this day, so horrible, how can Michael Jackson's death be no 3? He was one person!

Killed more people then on 9/11. - booklover1

This is my moms b day! So sad for all the families

3 September 1st, 1939 - WWII Starts With the German Invasion of Poland

Hitler is just awful! at least it didn't attack the USA because of Pearl Harbor. but that was good since USA might win the war while Hitler loses - ROBLOX Connor4808

With this date, WWII started. The worst war in the history of the world. Over 60 millions of people died. Both soldiers and innocent civilians. The world was devastated and Europe ended weak and exhausted, giving USA and Soviet Union possibility to take control of the states and that started another conflict - the Cold War. And the start of the worst war in history is lower than death of Michael Jackson?

So? The Polish were the first ones who caused atrocities on the German minority in Poland, more specifically Danzig. It's just natural for the Germans to invade Poland because of such actions.

Why is the death of drug addicted man above this - TeamRocket747

4 August 6th, 1945 - Atomic Bomb Dropped On Hiroshima


Why is the death of a drug addicted pop star is higher that this? This list is full of KIDS shows being aired and songs they don't like being released.

How is this lower than all of those stupid excuses? About 200000 People died this day instantly.

Sure, going after civilians is overkill, but it ended the war and was simply a warning shot, would you have preferred Tokyo? - FrozenHatingPokefan

Really? Michael Jackson's death is above this? - IronSabbathPriest

5 December 7th, 1941 - Attack on Pearl Harbor

I can't believe "Dora First Aired" AND "Doc McStuffins Premiers are BOTH higher than this! At least nobody died when Dora and Doc McStuffins first aired. Almost 2/3 of the USS Arizona's crew were killed because of this attack! I can't believe this is how screwed up American Society is!

Lower than Dora airing? - 445956

Lower than some old nostalgiatard shows getting cancelled? , I'm starting to lose faith in this site - B1ueNew

6 July 28th, 1914 - World War I Breaks Out

R.I.P Franz - Moyachhka

7 December 14th, 2012 - Sandy Hook Elementary School Shooting

I hope the guy who shot up the school is burning and slowly rooting in pain in hell.

I remember hearing about this, I was grade 8 at the time, I think it made me scared that it may happen at my school, but It never did at least - trains45

This was a really sad day, I remember seeing it on the news, it was really sad to see

This was really sad, I remember hearing about it, it was really sad to hear on the news - trains45

8 June 25th, 2009 - Michael Jackson Dies

Really? You compare the death of a drug-addicted pop star (who had a terrible criminal history) to awful events such as school shootings, WWII events, and terrorist attacks. This is why American society is screwed. This list is full of KIDS shows being aired and songs they don't like being released.

1. If you don't like a kids show, it's probably because you aren't a kid. Grow up
2. A celebrity dies, it sucks, but is it as bad as thousands of civilians dying? No
3. Don't like a certain song that was released? Don't listen to it.

Before voting for one of those ridiculous items, ask yourself. Is this worse than thousands of innocent people being killed? If your answer is yes, shut off your internet, leave your country and live in Antarctica for the rest of your life.

Rant over - ryanrimmel

No need to disrespect Michael Jackson. I agree that all those days are worse than this, but disrespecting Michael Jackson and claiming that children voting an item on this list is "a reflection of American society" is not only immature, but also just plain silly. - SurcaneWolf

I love Michael Jackson as much as the next person, but why is this above the sinking of the Titanic, WWII, terrorist attacks, deadly shootings, etc. Basically, everyone cares more about the death of one pop star then the deaths of thousands of civilians.

Is it sad that I discovered who he was the day he died? Also this isn't as bad as some other stuff on here. - djpenquin999

It sucked that he died, but wars, 9/11 are way worse - LeetHaterz

9 April 15th, 1912 - Titanic Sinks

This is awful since some people died on the titanic while some are on lifeboats. put this higher than the death of michael jackson - ROBLOX Connor4808

It's such a sad event. What made it worse is that it happened on a Monday. Those poor, innocent people.

How is "Barney First Aired" higher than this?

wow... I can't believe that... how this gonna be happen...?

10 January 12th, 2010 - Haiti Earthquake

This is simply sad. Everyone who voted for "Baby Being Released", or "Barney/Dora Premiered" need to realize how sad the other dates are. Really? Why should we care if Iggy Azalea was born? Is it as bad as economic collapses and death?

Yeah please highee

The Newcomers

? March 27, 1990 - Kimbra Was Born

The Contenders

11 August 31st, 1997 - Princess Diana Dies

I thought I was sleeping for 20 years - Maddox121

I don't usually put celebrity deaths on my list, but SHE WAS THE FLIPPING PRINCESS OF ENGLAND! AND SOME DRUNK DRIVER MANAGED TO TAKE HER LIFE! - djpenquin999

No One Cares About Your Personal Lives!

Don't care about monrachy

12 April 20th, 1889 - Adolf Hitler Was Born

Had Hitler never been born, the Nazi Party would've never been created, the Holocaust would've never happened and Anne Frank may have still been alive today. - InfinateSuperstorm

It should've been hitler and the nazis that were killed in the concentration camps and not the jews. If Hitler were here, I would stab him, strangle him to death, rip his skull open, and throw him into a pit of zombies where the pit will be nuked and Hitler and his remains will be gone forever!

Those Poor Jews Wouldn't Have Been Tortured and Killed if That Jerk Hitler Hadn't Been Born.

Well he didn't start taking over the world until he became leader of the Nazis. - 4rs3R4mm3r

13 April 20th, 1999 - Columbine High School Massacre

this is one of the deadliest school shootings in history :( those two were just bad and they made a disturbing video. they were so angry that they swore while they are saying that they are killing you. well, most school shootings have shooters shoot themselves. - ROBLOX Connor4808

Kids shows airing are higher than this on the list... - B1ueNew

What a nice day this was! (Sarcasm lots of stuff I write is sarcasm)

14 June 6th, 1944 - Normandy Landings (D-Day)

Although this battle which was started by the Allied forces was very bloody, one of the advantages that came out of this was when they defeated the Germans and liberated France. - JoeBoi

15 August 23th, 2005 - Hurricane Katrina

Correction, Hurricane Katrina struck New Orleans on August 29, 2005.

This is lower than kids show airing why?! At least thosands didn't die when they aired.

Actually August 29th was the day Katrina did the worst disaster it could to America, when it hit New Orleans and flooded it.

Lower than Sesame Street and Adventure Time, 2 great shows, airing? Who did this? - 445956

16 June 26th, 2015 - Same Sex Marriages law passed

Oh great! An another votebot has gotten this item up in the Top 10. Just plain terrific. - Kevinsidis

People sin by choice being gay is a sin and I also believe black people shouldn't live and women belong in the kitchen

All jokes aside any one who believes being gay is a sin just despises World Peace

Humans didn't exist to marry people from their same sex, that's gross.
If you were born gay you can fight yourself and try to be straight (I'm not joking humans can control themselves if they want to) - Votebotingsucks

Apparently, this just proves that the boundaries of marriage has been redefined. Marriage is a privilege for couples of opposite sexes, and not a "right" which people would try to insist. And homosexuals can date as long as they want, nothing against that. They usually take things too far. We only need to decriminalize homosexuality, not give them extra rights.

That's fair, simply because I view it the same way. I feel as though they should be accepted as any other couple would be, but giving them extra rights just makes them more differentiated from everyone else again. - MasonOcker

17 March 11th, 2011 - 2011 Tohoku, Japan Earthquake and Tsunami

Finally it's in the top 10 where it belongs. Over 20,000 were killed because of this awful Earthquake.

I remember seeing this on the news the day this happened it was crazy, I remember the big flood it made - trains45

91? 91? NINETY ONE?
This is a huge tragedy. Worse than 9/11, and definitely worse than Justin Beiber being born, songs being released, or shows being released. And this is 91? Holy crap.

WHY DO PEOPLE THINK WHEN BARNEY AIRED IS THE WORST DAY? I get it some bad T.V. show but when it aired, it didn't cause any deaths! But this Japan earthquake caused a lot of deaths. This is the worst day! Well to Japanese people but still

18 April 15th, 1995 - Oklahoma City Bombing

So terrible. It involved Timothy McVeigh along with Terry Nichols blowing up a government building killing 168 people. Their motive was to take revenge on the U.S. government for Waco and Ruby Ridge. - JoeBoi

How is Michael Jackson above this?

Really? , people grow up, Shows can't go on forever, The Simpsons and Spongebob will have to end one day too, yeah it will be sad, but to put it higher than bombings and shootings, you nostalgiatards need to grow up - B1ueNew

I don't even think Rugrats is all that good.

Hey Arnold came back with a T.V. movie, and rugrats came back with a comic strip series. - ConorDooley

25 April 26th, 1986 - Chernobyl Disaster (Nuclear Power Plant Meltdown)

He had ALS though, but he was the creator of SpongeBob on Nickelodeon. and he died so soon at 57.
The whole world of television is heartbroken.

44 April 15, 2013 - Boston Marathon Bombings

I knew someone at school who thought Boston was just the name of a band so he unwittingly said something offensive about the Boston bombing when it happened. It then turned into an argument with a mate of mine who was in the same taxi as this person, and the person who said the offensive words said "It won't stop me from singing More Than A Feeling" that was so messed up at the time. - Liam31idents

Probably saddest day in Boston history - Randomator

Why is Dora above this

45 January 6th, 2020, YouTube Coppa Update Was Released
