Top 10 Worst Decades In History

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

The Top Ten

1 2010s

Worst decade I've ever experienced. When this current decade started, things were going fine. In 2010 and 2011, teenage fashion was still looking fine, music was still good (especially pop music), and not everyone was a smartphone addict. In 2012, things still kind of went okay, but by 2013, you could notice that many people became addicted to smartphones and the internet. The mid-10's started to see cell phones as the most important thing in life, and by 2015-16, pretty much everyone became obsessed with their phone. Trends also became worse at that time. Now you've got every teenage girl wanting to dye their hair blonde, and teenage boys wearing hoods, even in the summer when it's 90 degrees. This causes a lot of pressure to me. Music also went downhill, and now you've got either two choices of popular music: rap with trap beats, EDM, or a regular pop song featuring a rap artist. And then there's social media, which is responsible for putting hashtags to advertise products such as ...more

The crowning achievement of horrible decades.

Oh whatever its because you are obsessed with the 20th century and entertainment sucks because you don't ignore it and slag it off hurting fans. Go back to your favourite entertainment of the 20th century.

My favorite years were (2006-2012), except for 2009. I think I will say 2013 was when I noticed that things were starting to suck! 2013 and 2014 were crap.
Things were starting to really suck later on in 2015 and it gets worse and worse in 2016
And after that, 2017 is the worst year for me
We’ll just have to wait till 2020 and we can all restart a new era

Come on! This is when Mussolinni, Hitler, and Franco came to power.

Sino-Japanese War, Great Depression, Stalin's reign of terror, Rise of the Nazi Regime, Start of World War 2... Pretty hard to top that.

This decade was a thousand times worse that the 2010s - Aha223

All better years are the 2000s to 2012, accept 2009!

6 1940s

The 80s generation think that just because there are a few bad artists in the 2010s it makes it the worst generation, completely ignoring the 1940s which had the bloodiest war in human history

Hardest decade for USSR. The first five years brutal, bloody battles

Come on! This should be #1 on the list - PeeledBanana

The 1940s were worse than the 2010s. - Fullwalking2

So many bad things happened that time. - ItsDaWorldOfSNuGGLEZ

This was the decade The Legend Of The Titanic was released.

8 1340s

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!

9 2020s

10 1970s

The Contenders
