Worst Years of the 21st Century

What are the worst years that this millennium has had to offer, and why?

The Top Ten

1 2001

Not a very bad year, other than 9/11, but that is all that happened

Hey, I was born in 2001! - PerfectImpulseX

When 9/11 occurred.

2 2011

This year killed millions and millions! Even worse than 2012! - StumpyFox-09

Add an extra 2 years and it's better

3 2012

Nutters thought it's the end of the world.
Even a movie.

This year was when many things broke loose, like the End of the World Prediction, and how stressful it was for me at the time when I was a severely autisitc 9 year old (with the prediction and other fears I had grown from that year)

Ugh, what’s bad about this year if Hurricane Sandy and shootings at a Movie Theater in Colorado and an Elementary School in Connecticut. - JoeBoi

Here's my timeline/opinion:

1999: Born

2000 - 2003: Awesome years! Best games, best movies, best T.V. shows., and best music of the late 90s and early 00s

2004 - 2007: Great years, but not as good as the earlier years, but still had a great childhood.

2008 - 2012: These years were okay, Things were starting to change a lot.

2013 - 2014: Bad, Things were starting to suck!

2015 - 2016: Awful! Things were getting worse

2017 - Present: $#! tty music, movies, T.V. shows, etc.

4 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.

It was a worst yera of my life

I think the 2010s is the worst decade not in music that's just over-hate.
But in the famous people that died.


-I suffered from severe sun sensitivity.
-I was homebound nearly the entire summer because of the sensitivity.
-I went on a cruise, but was sick for 2 days afterwards.
-a lady in Boston was rude to me

Should be much, much higher. I despised this year. This year had so much violence and horrible music, not to mention so many deaths of good celebrities. The 2010s in general was horrible. I don’t think I want to remember the music in this decade.

2004 was so boring... - TheDelBel

Boeing 757 left production this year :(

6 2008

I was born

7 2005

One of the only good things about this was the beginning of YouTube. - GehennaTheSecond

Hurricane katrina struck in this year on august 29

8 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.

In my opinion, a terrible year but at least I got to watch the entirety of the Magical Girl Lyrical Nanoha franchise (except for episode 12.5 of MGLN ViVid because it was just a recap episode) for the very first time and the first three seasons (the original, A's, and StrikerS) became my favorite magical girl anime (and currently, my favorite anime in general) of all time though and the best movie I've ever seen (Ready Player One) came out that year. - PerfectImpulseX

2018 just sucks for the most part. We have had shootings at high schools in Texas and Florida, an office building in Maryland, a video game tournament in Jacksonville, the YouTube Headquarters, a synagogue in Pittsburgh, and a bar in California. Also, many celebrities died and lots of natural disasters happened. - JoeBoi

2018- Everyone is dead. But real talk, this year sucked

This year and 2017 should be higher on the list. - PerfectImpulseX

Everything sucks in 2006!

T.V. sucks (2006-presents)

I was born

10 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.

School was bad in 2017

2016 and 2017 are the WORST YEARS EVER! Take it from a girl who had her heart broken in those years. Both personally, and from international stuff. It was the WORST. Mark my words. Love heart breaks, shootings, boys trapped in a cave, too many deaths, it was awful!

I was suicidal that year. I was going through so much horrible stuff that I wanted to kill myself, and I WAS ONLY FOURTEEN! I went homeless in summer of that year and my parents were fighting, forcing me to pick a side. - Hanjax70

The worst year of my life was 2017, cause I had to switch buses in November, and my dog died in December :'(

The Contenders

11 2009

2006, 2007, and 2008 were better years than 2009.

2009 sucked, It was just boring! I was hospitalized 2 times and I got a very mean teacher back then and I hated it, I had a lot of bad school days in 2009, thank god I skipped some days out of it! Nickelodeon and other T.V. channels changed their logo and got crappy designs, The N was rebranded to TeenNick and Noggin died in 2009 and replaced by Nick Jr. and we had a teeny tiny bland vehicle and It was stiff and we knew Michael Jackson Died And got replaced by that idiot Justin POOPER!

12 2015

I bet cha in 10 years some people are probably gonna say "I miss the 2010s so much the 2020s suck! " Now people are saying "I miss the 2000s and the 2010s suck! " right!

Offensive, idiotic, should have NEVER happened. Absolutely nothing good or interesting happened that year. Why does everyone like this pointless year so much? I would do anything to delete this horrifying year from existence. Should have been totally skipped. - PageEmperor

Pointless year. - PageEmperor

This next to 2011 was the worst. - TheDelBel

Hey. I'll have you know this was when I was born, If anything this was the best year of my life because of it.

14 2002

This is the year I Was born. I have peace and quiet until... the following years had started.

I do love the early 2000s, but I also remember (2005-2012), my childhood years, so I cannot hate those years, well except for 2009.

15 2014

2014 was very bad, although 2017 sucked more! Strangely, 2017 reminds me a lot of 2014, because they’re both terrible!

In 2014, it was that terrible appendix surge, my appendix popped out, then I threw up and some green crap came out of my mouth

2014 was hell for sure

2014 was very, very, very, very, very, very bad, Though 2017 sucked more! Strangely... 2017 reminds me so much of 2014, because they’re both terrible.
I had been hospitalized in 2014 as well, I could have died in 2014.
2014 was hell for sure.

2014 was very, very, very, very, very, very, very, very bad, though 2017 sucked more! Strangely enough, 2017 reminded me a lot of 2014, because they were both terrible. A lot of man made and natural disasters happened in 2014 as well, and I had been hospitalized a lot in 2014 as well, 2014 was hell for sure :’(

16 2019

2019 - So Far the worst year of my life!

1. Fatal train accident in Denmark

2. More and more celebrities dying

3. Uber accident

4. Subistitue bus driver running late on January

5. Bus Driver making stop on another location instead of my house! He should be grounded until he dies!

Looks like 2019 is 2017 all over again! Let's hope the 2020s could have an 80s/90s comeback

2020 is going to Suck because it will end up like 2016,2017,2018,and 2019

This year sucks already! Just 1 more year left till the 2010s is over. I hope the 2020s have a 1980s/1990s comeback

True, Just True

17 2007

To be honest CAN WE PLEASE delete 2007 though?

Why is this year on the list? Some really good anime came out that year like Gurren Lagann, Magical Girl Lyrical Nanoha StrikerS, Dancouga Nova, Gundam 00, Shakugan no Shana II, and Lucky Star! - PerfectImpulseX

For me:

1999-2005: Great!

2006-2008: Best Years of my life!

2009-2010: Bad!

2011-2012: they were okay!

2012 (December)-2013 (October): Depressing

2013 (November)-2014 (March): Abysmal!

2014 (April)-2015: Meh, it was okay!

2016-Present: Awful!

18 2013

Everything started to suck and shot to hell after 2012 ended! 2012 was the last good year that I will ever have. 2013 and 2014 were bad, but everything got worse later on in 2015 because Star Wars has shot to hell in 2015.

Don’t come to me saying “everything shot to hell in 2007/2008”, because that’s my opinion

Respect it

19 2010

2010 was bad too.
