Worst Years of the 2010s

The Top Ten

2016 2016 (MMXVI) was a leap year starting on Friday of the Gregorian calendar, the 2016th year of the Common Era (CE) and Anno Domini (AD) designations, the 16th year of the 3rd millennium, the 16th year of the 21st century, and the 7th year of the 2010s decade.

This year deserves to be number 1, it was terrible, I went to a bad middle school, had to leave my friends, the last few days were the only good days of this year since I can move away from that stupid middle school

The worst election in US history, not even 2020 will come as a surprise anymore

The rise of mainstream media corruption and how companies buy politician votes (ie snake ass Hillary)

The year that divided the United States for good.

The year Star wars died for good, the year nostalgia was taken advantage of as a form of money, the last year YouTube and other forms of social media could go unfiltered without having restrictions based on political correctness/political beliefs

Multiple mass shootings, multiple notable deaths, the death of hip hop, the death of rock and to top it all off the death of the YouTube star, the left wing mainstream media owns everything now, and they own you. Good luck making it out there as a conservative, they will surely not help you in the slightest

Pherhaps even more boring than 2018 because while we did travel to both Norway and Lithuania this year (technically we were in Estonia and Latvia as well), these were some of the more boring vacations I know of so far so it wasn't really too memorable in my opinion. The rest of the year was just straight-up uninteresting. The start of the year was terrible because of this nourishment drink thing (we'll talk more about it in 2015) and I was such a cringe fnaf fanboy here as well.

Music, Politics, Natural Disasters, pretty much everything but Movies were god awful. Thankfully, 2015, and 2017-2019 were good years, and 2016 was was only sandwiched by them

2017 2017 (MMXVII) was a common year starting on Sunday of the Gregorian calendar, the 2017th year of the Common Era (CE) and Anno Domini (AD) designations, the 17th year of the 3rd millennium, the 17th year of the 21st century, and the 8th year of the 2010s decade.

I am 1999.
2011: Mostly bad. Bad relationships with parents. I was not satisfied with myself. I was fat. I was an average teen.
2012: See 2011.
2013: See 2011 and 2012. Relationships with parents even worse.
2014: The first third and the second third: See 2013; the third third: It was better. Better relationships with parents. I started losing weight. I was more satisied with myself.
2015: January-May: See the third third of 2014; the rest of the year: In June 2015 probably the best part of my life started. I was satisfied with myself. I was not fat. No fear. Many interesting books I read. Many nice trips.
2016: See June-December 2015.
2017: January and the first half of February: See June-December 2015 and 2016; after the second half of February: Horrible. My depression started. Since March 2017 I have been in a funk. I am not completely satisfied with myself. I am fat again. Less books I read. Less trips. Only sometimes I had relatively good periods (September ...more

Surprisingly I liked 2017 despite it being after three bad/below-average years straight. We did a lot here and not too many bad things happened. For once we moved to a new good house, bigger than the previous, my second little sister was born and I went to Norway. It was the third time and my second favourite Norway trip because while we did more interesting stuff than in 2016, the first time (2015) will still always be the most special for me. School was better as well as I switched school and while I despised the new school later on, it was decen the first half.

2017! It sucks, I really hate this goddamn piece of crap space, I don't even conduce this to be a year, it's a nightmare! It is the worst year in the world, my personal life, movies, T.V. shows, movie studios, video games, music and everything. There is absolutely nothing good to say about this year (2017).

Where do I begin?

I switched buses, my pug died, Texas Church shooting, Hurricane Irma, Donald Trump being president, my sister sprang her knee, my cat has surgery, my family members hitting and fighting, Paramount Pictures has gone downhill BIG TIME, lots of celebrity deaths, mass shooting everywhere, terrorist attacks, lots of T.V. shows getting cancelled, mediocre remakes and mediocre sequels and Star Wars: The Last Jedi! (That movie SUCKED BIG TIME)!

I'm glad 2017 is OVER! Paramount has been making so many box office flops and under performing biggies in 2017 as well.

2018 seems to be a little better, we'll see

2017 was the 2nd worst year of my entire existance. My pets died, I moved houses, switched schools and lost my friends. I became depressed and didn't want to live. Movies, Songs, Video Games, Music and everything about this year was trash!


Yes. This year was overrated, embarassing, and was awful all round. Pretty much anyone with common sense understands that this was pretty much the most forgettable year ever because nothing good nor interesting happened. It is also the worst year for business, as shown on the list on this site of the same name. I can definitely see people in 2-3 years seeing this year and be like it just happened and nothing else.

This is the worst. Because while this was actually generally more nostalgic and memorable than the two years above, the bad stuff here, IS very bad. Not bad, but horrible. Worst year easly in my opinion. While the norway trip was awesome that's all this year has going for it that's good stuff. Say hello to December 2015, pherhaps one of the worst months of all time in my life. So basically my guts started to get very sick to the point I couldn't eat any normal food or else I'd get more sick so I had to drink nourishment drinks for a total of TWO months. While the first month was less boring than the second, I was way more ill here. Had to stay home from school for two weeks because I was so weak and ill and it was horrible. Worst year so far

2015 was such a bad year for me, why?
1. I got bullied multiple times at school.
2. My aunt died.
3. Music started to get worse after 2013 in my opinion.
4. I had a terrible school year and almost nobody in my class wanted to talk to me for some reason.

I was absolutely miserable. I hated myself and my depression and anxiety were destroying my life.

2018 2018 (MMXVIII) is a common year starting on Monday of the Gregorian calendar, the 2018th year of the Common Era (CE), the 9th year of the 2010s decade, the 18th year of the 21st century, and the 18th year of the 3rd millennium.

One of the most boring tied with 2016. Nothing just interesting just happened in 2018 for me. The only very good part of 2018 was once in June when we went to "Furuvik Zoo" which was awesome because of the coastal feels giving me nostalgia from lithuania trips. I also changed schools which was good. But overall that was all it had going for it. Everything else was just boring. The first three months here, that I call "The new winter illness" was memorable but no fun. Just so boring

2018 was a piece of garbage, it was AWFUL!
1. Fortnite took over the world and the video game industry and it was getting annoying for everyone.
2. The WORST YouTube Rewind EVER created was uploaded (Well, everyone disliked the video because everyone knew 2018 was a bad year at first and all that was in the video was mostly Fortnite)
3. School Shootings got more common.
4. My Grandma AND one of my uncles died.
5. Horrible music (especially the rap division)
6. Stupid challenges like the Tide Pod Challenge.
I'm glad it's over though!

This is when school shootings in America started to become... hmm what do I say. Popular? Not only that, but this was the year with the most school shootings in history.

I got depression my grandma died a hurricane hit my grandmas house in october and I started 6th grade which was the worst grade of my life most of my teachers were terrible AHEM MRS QUILLIAN AHEM MRS JONES and 2019 wasn't that better. My life started to suck after late 2015 when I got anxiety attacks and but then 2016 was a tiny bit better and 2017 was WAYY better and 2010 2011 and 2012 and most of 2013 oh and 2014 and 2015 when I started 2nd grade (i'm in 7th rn). I do know 2013 was a great year from what I remember and was probably the best and the music and stuff was way better


Um... THis list is Dumb.

Aah I remember when this was at the top. Eh, I loved this year mostly

Not a lot of games got more then a 9.0

Hello, the crappy school year! The worst year for autism and autism schools.


This year was garbage. Some days were good but I'd usually have very bad days.

This was basically the "first" bad year in my opinion. Most notably because of the December here. I got the super rare disease known as "Henoch-Schönlein" which made me unable to walk without hurting myself. Luckily I was just a kid so it wasn't too dangerous. The vacation to Lithuania is where it gets interesting. It's the second most nostalgic and memorable vacation I have ever had and everything there was just memorable. At the same time I fell very ill there so I had to go to the hospital but something about it was just so nostalgic so I'd say this year is in the middle.

2014 was very bad, though 2017 sucked more! Strangely 2017 reminds me a lot of 2014, because I think they're both terrible.

I was hospitalized in 2014 as well.

2014 was hell for sure.

For me this year was better than 2015,2016 and 2017


2012 should be ranked #1 on this list because of all the tragic things that have happened in 2012, the Costa Concordia sank, 20 kids were killed in a mass school shooting in Connecticut, people committed suicide because of the end of the world predictions, a lot of people feared the end of the world in 2012, there was a mass shooting at a movie theater in Colorado and all of these tragic moments affected the whole year of 2012, therefore making 2012 the worst year ever. I cannot believe that such a tragic year was ranked #1 on the list of the best years in the 2010s, 2012 is the worst year ever and the most overrated year ever. I do not get why do people love 2012 after all of these tragic things happened in 2012 and If you look up most tragic moments of 2012 and the Costa Concordia sinking then you will see why 2012 was the worst year ever.

End of the world... Nope, not going to happen since 2000

The only decent years in this decade were probably 2010, 2011, and 2012, but everything else sucks!

Yea... The world didn't end.


This year 2019 marks the close of a decade called the 2010s. A decade will go down in history as 2010s is decade full of anguish, hatred, disgrace, adversity, injustice, shock, depression, and immorality. Maybe in the next decade 2020s, things will change when people may do good things to make the world a better place. Even though we make mistakes, will there still be good morals like they used to be in the good old days? Think about it.

The beginning was too scary for me. I started losing a great friend. I had the worst birthday. The things from 2011 came back. COPPA ruined YouTube.

9/20/2019 was a set date for a massive raid at Area 51 near Las Vegas. There weren't any xenomorphs from the movie Aliens being held captive by the US armed forces. Instead, few people came to do a Naruto run.

This year hasn't been that good. Not terrible or garbage but not any good things about this year so far, and it's been almost 8 months in.


Overall might be the best year of the 2010s. My life was still very fun and lively. School was actually very fun in 2010, and same goes for 2011 and 2012 to be honest. Could finally leave daycare for good in 2010 as well. My vacation to Lithuania was the highlight though. So amazing and much nostalgia from it although one of the weaker trips. On top of that, I got introduced to a flash game called Deep Freeze which likely did the biggest positive impact on my childhood. The dreams..., and my stories I made...

Why do you hate this year for ONE song?

This year is okay. But looking back at it makes me cringe and is easily on my top five least favorite years.

Justin Bieber's "Baby" was released that year.


Honestly my life was the same here as in 2010 with the Deep Freeze and vacation stuff out of the way though. So slightly worse than 2010 because it was less memorable but still good overall. School was awesome still my first Lego City Advent Calendar I got which I have much nostalgia for and the dreams I had in December. Other than that it's slightly worse than 2010 but still great.

If you lived in Joplin, Missouri this year would probs be one of the worst

I was born in 1999.
2007-2010: Sometimes good, sometimes bad.
2011: Bad.
2012: Ordinary.
2013: Mostly bad.
January-August: Mostly bad.
September-December: Relatively good.
2015: Very good.
2016: Very good.
The second half of February-November: Bad.
January-the first half of February and December: Good.
2018: In the balance.

This is the year where my life went to hell.
