Top 10 Worst Decades In History

What do you think is the absolute worst decade of all time?

The Top Ten

1 1930s

I'd say this decade is the worst, even though the 2010s are a bad decade culturally, this decade is known mostly for the wars and the Great Depression when suicide rates were really high and the economy was intensely bad, so overall, this is when the World suffered most. - Call

Nah, the 1930s and the first half of the 40s were the worst decade in earth's history.

To anyone who votes recent years as the worst years in the world and everything, You have got to be kidding me, 1939-1945 were actually the worst years ever!

Nah, 1939-1945 were actually the world's worst year ever.

How am I supposed to be a fan of this decade when there's racism everywhere, hypocrites are on the rise that are effecting the decades fashion, Terror going too far, society becoming more annoying, internet risk, society risk, global warming on the ultimate rise, animal and plant population is lowering (Yes, that means there would be less McDonald's for you) Politics are also at risk (I mean yeah, there are a lot of things at risk in this decade compared to the other decades from the post WWII era) The economy is stupid, the innocent people are getting hated on for no reason, Air is polluted, people are becoming famous for stupid reasons and not for profession, pop culture is 100% annoying and can make so many angry people so that everyone would be angry, health issues to millions of people, viruses everywhere, suicide everywhere, there's people everywhere that don't even sleep often, crappy remakes ruining our lives, natural disasters everywhere that people don't even care about ...more

You wanna know why this is the worst decade ever? I'll tell you why because were living in such a sensitive world where were sitting behind one screen and were not gonna have a fist digitally compose itself into a physical hand and punches in our faces for saying the wrong things. Wrong things subjectively. And it pisses me off because we didn't have this in the 60s we didn't have this in the 70s we didn't have this in the 80s we didn't have this in the 90s we didn't have this in the 2000s and we didn't have this in the Early 2010s. We were just sitting there watching our favorite movies and shows and if we got offended then we kept it to ourselves. Now people are just stuff like "oh I feel offended" you have a freedom and right to be offended yes. But there's also a freedom and right to offend.

I stopped buying new music this year, because a lot of the 2019 songs suck!

Hard to find anything good

7 1940s

Come on! This should be #1 on the list

1940's- wars
2010's- bad trends and fashion

Some how the 1940's is better than the 2010's

Hitler, The Nazis, The Holocaust started.

70 Million Deaths from a war that sure started in the ladder part of 1939 but most of them died in this decade, the beginning of the cold war, and the many other atrocities that are too numerous to list.

I'd have back to the 1990s.
No social media. (Unless you count messengers, chatrooms)
Kids addicted to a video game they are too young to play (Fortnite)
Too much digital around.
2010s - Brexit

William Steig created the book shrek in this decade.

Overrated decade, but still 8 times better than the disgrace of the 10s. - Frodomar49

Everything got bad after 1991.

Who cares! I wouldn't mind If the ban on alcohol was reinstated.

Really? this is at the bottom of the list? why not the eighties? the great depression and the Spanish flu and all that?

Alcohol was prohibited during this decade.
