Worst Years In History
The Contenders: Page 3
Um hello? This is the year where we pioneered into space. I don't know what I was thinking stumbling upon this pessimistic list.
The year Sharon Tate died.
One of the most brutal mass murders occured
Many bad things happened that year. The Columbine High School shooting and NATO bombings of Yugoslavia occurred. I was also born this year, which brought too much stress and chaos for not only my family, but also for society. - anonygirl
The year The Columbine High School Massacre occurred and that The Legend Of The Titanic was released.
NATO bombings of Yugoslavia, the turning point in relations between the western bloc and the Russian Federation.

The fall of the Roman Empire - ethanmeinster
North korea got its independence this year.. - CoolKidsClub
When the worst storm in history hit Galveston and surrounding areas killing 6-8000 people
The massive explosion that wiped out all the dinosaurs
The end of the Cretaceous era, in which a big asteroid slams down into Mexico and destroys an entire civilization. I hope you're happy, universe.
Think about though. The dinosaurs had died because it was their time. I agree it is sad but without the extinction I would not be typing this and no one would be here.
The food chain would be all over if it weren't for the astroidV 8 Comments
This should be above 65 million because. This was way worse. The extinction. (Not the dinosaur extinction! )
Extinction, it happened and it was not pretty
This should be top.
This should be #1 because 95% of all living things at the time became extinct.
Not the cringiest, just the most disastrous. - SamHalls2015
Jamie Bulger and Stephen Lawrence were murdered this year. The World Trade Centre was also attacked for the first time. Therefore it should definitely be in the top ten worst years in history. - aldwych94
First of all there were a lot of kids similar to James Bulgar killers. For example Eric murdered a little boy that year. Why did they do these things? Since there was so much murder and assault they thought it was normal. Secondly Eric killed because bullies were probably the worst around that time. WTcenter was attacked. Early 90s was bad in general
Assassination of Martin Luther King Jr.
Assassination of Robert Kennedy
Earthquake in Sicily kills 231 people
Tet offensive in Vietnam
Robert Kennedy and Martin Luther King Jr. were assassinated that year. - anonygirl
Very bad year for America. 2 great men were struck down.racially motivated rioting. The Tet Offensive begins.
Seriously, how is this not Number 1!? MLK and RFK were assassinated that year. The Vietnam War turned violent. There were race riots after the death of Dr King. Police attacked protestors outside the DNC in Chicago. Nixon was elected. George Wallace ran and caused tension. There was an Earthquake in Italy.V 1 Comment
I don't think 201.3 million years ago lived by dinosaurs - SpencerJC
This was when the Black Death spread like wildfire throughout Europe. It was very horrid. Bodies were piling up in the streets, and all people thought about was death. - ethanmeinster
Black plague, people. You don't want to be thereV 1 Comment
The Video Game Crash of 1983 was what made this year the worst. Enough said! - imacg4
Still better than 2016. - anonygirl
It was still better than 2009
-The video game industry almost ended forever (Video game crash of 1983)
-The reign of humankind almost ended forever (Soviet nuclear false alarm incident)
Probably not as bad as 1914, 1942, or 1837, but still extremely threatening.
Seriously? I can't think of ANYTHING majorly bad that happened in 2002. This was a year when the world was able to finally catch a break after the 9/11 attack! All I see here is stuff about people's personal lives.
This is a personal choice for me. Me and my family had to move out of our old neighborhood and into a trailer for the whole entire year. It was rough and crowded. Our new house wasn't built until next year which was 2003.
The only thing I remember in 2002 was that I was born and accidentally pissed in a nurses mouth. - AlphaQ
My Chemical Romance released their first album in 2002 - railfan99V 5 Comments
