Top Ten Worst Days


The Top Ten

1 September 11th, 2001 - 9/11 Attacks

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

I hate terrorists so much! I can't believe they would do something as horrendous as crashing airplanes into buildings and killing thousands of innocent americans! Literally it should've only been terrorists and sick minded idiots such as Hitler and Bin Laden that died in the towers and not all those innocent human beings. Sure it may not be the worst moment in history, but it's definitely up there.

This is the worst day. On this day every year, I cry and remember everyone who fell.

This is definitely the wort day in history. The youngest victim was a 2 year old girl on United 175! RIP Christine Lee Hanson 1999-2001 :( Also T.V. Producer David Angel was killed on board American 11. The Passengers on United 93 were very brave fighting people who could've easily killed them.
RIP All who died that day. :(

2 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

Sheesh. I know that they did Pearl Harbor, but they didn't deserve this... - djpenquin999

3 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

4 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?

5 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

How is the voting of immature children a reflection on American society, esp when this site has international members & users? - Billyv

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

I was 5 years old and I went to my room and I saw my uncle put on the news and it said. Michael Jackson died :(
R.I.P my favorite singer when I was little. - Danguy10

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

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.

This should be at #1. - Metal_Treasure

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

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

Come on! This should be number 1! Yes Barney isn't a good show but it's worse than an earthquake and a tsunami? Some TopTenners need to care less about T.V. shows or bad popstars

:( Gladly I survived but people here in Japan is memorated always. - ArigatoKawaii

8 April 15th, 1912 - Titanic Sinks

How is "Barney First Aired" higher than this?

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

Also known as my birthday

9 November 22nd, 1963 - Assassination of John Fitzgerald Kennedy

This should be much higher than 72. - Pony

Wow people have dumbass voting taste this is the 2nd most well known presidential assasination

10 April 20th, 1889 - Adolf Hitler Was Born

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

They should've used a condom.

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

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.

Well said, it's just the fact some people will have a hard time adjusting to it. - htoutlaws2012

So if your someone who is heterosexual and you were the parent of let's say a 5 year old and a homosexual comes up, how well you explain that to your kid or Kids - htoutlaws2012

Talk about a tragedy, Look people will never look this day the same ever again.

Even if you're religious, this day wasn't that horrible. No one died, and it supported Freedom of Religion. - djpenquin999
