Best Years to Be Born


The Top Ten

1 1948

Black people had it great!

Uhhh you got the 80's after


Born into the Welfare State - NHS, State Pension, Final Salary Pension, student grants, mortgage tax relief, house price inflation. World Cup '66, The Beatles, Andy Pandy, Crackerjack etc.. life was simpler. No P.C., AIDS, and missed National Service.
Now coming 70 in December with 11 years retirement wealthier and fitter(ish) than ever. Say, do and drink what I like.

The final year to say 80s baby "born in the 80s"

Nina Dobrev, Phoebe Tonkin, such beautiful girls

Not to much technologi and the japanese car scene was at its peak wish I was born then. I was born 2003

Loved her from the outset, such a young vibrant woman who has remained an artist that when heard,... allow yourself the time to stop and listen... it's "Taylor"

It's a fact who tf voted for the first 2?

Best year to be born. You will always know your age acording last to numbers.

Don't be so mean to anyone who was born after 2000, after all people born in 2010, 2020 might see the year 3000 or the world could destruct with either climate change or WW3 BOOM! Oh god now its mutants, or its back to the cave days.

It's a old time

5 1938

Would have been young enough to avoid actually taking part in WWII or Korean war, but would have seen a fascinating period of American history.

6 2002

I was born in 2002 and have twin older sisters from 1998. We watched shows like Recess, Drake and Josh, Hannah Montana, etc. and had great music too. We played board games like Sorry! and the Game of Life. We have had great music and know how to use technology to access whatever we want. Overall, we have had the last great culture before the internet completely destroyed the minds of the 2006+ generation.

Haha I was born in 2000 but 2002 sounds so cool, two numbers 2 in the front and behind and two numbers 0 in betweeen+ you guys will become the adults in 2020 and will be 20 in 2022, so funny!

We had bomb ass music to listen to growing up, we had YouTube, timothy delaghetto, Nickelodeon, Cartoon Network. We had 2006 Shaquille o Neal.2002 is the best year to grow up in prove me wrong

No one said anything? Honestly, I don't know if this is the best year to be born. It's 2018 and Millenials are supposedly on their way out (I you take the "ends at 1994" definition). I feel old and like my time is over even if I'm at the tail end. I'm 25 and I don't know whether I'm young or old. We have Ariana Grande, I guess.

8 1955

It isn't about the year I was born, but when I reached my teens. I feel I lived through the best music but maybe everyone feels like that!

9 2003

I was born, in this year. The best year to be born, in a lot of ways. - AriFan101

I was born in 2003

Last year that you could be born with common sense

You basically insulted me because I was born in 2004, which you said is the first year you aren't born with common sense. - allamassal

Allamassal just got roasted.

11 1949
12 1999

Last year of the century enough said.

My year! - Userguy44

This is the final year before the 21st century. Anyone born here that lives to be 101 will have lived in 3 different centuries. People born in this year also was deprived of some technologies just like everyone else in the 20th century. We grew up without phones as well and never even know what social media was until late middle school. We didn't care about our looks growing up and we just focused on having a normal childhood like everyone else.

Best time to be alive we got to experience old cartoons such as Rugrats and Doug but we was still able to have cool gadgets too without being overloaded with all the technology things now. Plus I just like the year lol

This year is the best, lol...

We're the last good year before the jake paulers. although some of us are on the edge

Better than most years, there were lots of shows and things to do at the same time and we weren't influenced by technology too much.

I was born that year

Beginning of a new era, plus its officially 2000 era

Specifically January 2001

I was born in 2001. I know 90s stuff. Here in India in early childhood we experience Nintendo games, VCR's, radios don't have any android phones just old nokia phone belongs to my dad. Play lot of sports in childhood

Old enough that you know 90s stuff but not too old to not understand technology some of the smartest people in the world are born on this year

18 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 was bad for me I’d don’t like this year. So no

Naw It's a bad year - FerrariDude64

Just because my daughter was born

I would like to have a child. But the way things are today...perhaps not. Too selfish and violent and hardly any discipline. - Britgirl

19 1998


1998 is the best year, not too close to the 2000s (Unlike 1999) so early 90s born, can’t say we aren’t 90s baby!

20 1997

It's the year when the person who will change the world was born.
Those who were born in 1997 are different in every single way.

21 1969

Because 69 lol

I was born in 1969. In my opinion the best year to be born. I got to grow up with kiss in the 70s collect magazines of rock bands and record albums of rock bands. My teens were the mid-80s. In my early twenties were the early nineties! which in my opinion is the best ERA for music and so much more. We were not inundated with music social media and everything else that is now inundating our world and lives

Very cool year to be born, not only because of the last two numbers (69) but people born this time had a great teenage years in 80's just when Madonna was on the top, they were experienced but still young in 00's, my favourite decade. 2010's suck so much

The year when Jennifer Lopez and Anniston; Gwen Stefani, Mariah Carey amd Jay-Z and Ketha Zeta Jons were born. The hottest women ever existed. They were teenage girls in 80'S, 20 year old women in 90's and hot 30 year old girls in 2000's. The best years! My mum was born this year + this number 69

22 1992

I was born on Valentines Day of this year, and am old enough to remember lots of great 90s Saturday morning cartoons when they first came out when I was a kid!

Seems god!

Many greats born this year... Well by many I mean me

My year!

23 1994

This is the year because rap was going crazy.

Peace and love worldwide!

Ready to Die by The Notorious B.I.G and Illamtic by Nas dropped

24 1991

The final year of 90s kids after that its 90s young child, toddlers and 90s babies. 1991 8 in 1999, 1992 7 in 1999 1993 6 in 1999 1994 5 in 1999 1995 4 in 1999 1996 3 in 1999 1997 2 in 1999 1998 1 in 1999 1999 born in 1999. How much do you remember of the years of the 90s if you was born between 1992-1999? Not much. If you was young child 5-7, toddler or baby.

25 1984
26 1975
27 1990

You are able to be a true 90s kid.

The first year of the most obsessed decade, the year that everyone obsessed with can't remember either a baby/toddler/not born yet. I don't remember the year either but shut up about the 90s. I had a childhood in that decade but you don't need to be obsessed.

28 1977

100% Get the first three 'dumb' years out of the way and enough to know you are alive, then 3-13 enjoying the 80s classic cartoons, movies and music. Then your teenage years in the 90s enjoying the more matured culture. Greatest two decades in history bar none!

The 90's as a teenager

Are you kidding me People?
1977 Hands Down is the best year to have been born.
Let me state my reasons.
Grew up in the 80's (2-12) Great Toys, Cartoons, Movies, We still had our Innocence, Played Outside.
Came of Age in the 90's (12-22) Great Music, Dope Parties, Internet came out when they were 16.
2000's: (22-32): Were in their 20's during the Millennium Change & Were the among the 1st Net Entrepreneurs.
As of 2018(41): Still young enough to enjoy life!
Thank You

Lived 90s as teenager

29 1973

1972 was a good year didn't have cell phone's all over and family enjoy getting together

1973 would be a good time to be born get to experience the early 80s onwards clearly.

30 2008

The best year is 2008. India and the USA was booming thanks to new products being prepared for the next year and things being sold being created years back. I don’t know why it is this low on the list.

31 1802

I was born so yh obviously best year
-your dad

32 1980

33 1349


1349 was when a pile of dirt was born


34 1960

Born to young for Vietnam, yet able to enjoy the human interaction of playing games with friends without the distractions of smart phones and social media. All that comes later when you are older and wiser. You get the joys of pre social media/Internet age and the benefits of the post technology explosion that has been going on since the 90s. Born in 1960 gives you the experience of the old days and watching the earth transform into the technlogical explosion that we see today.

You were a teen in the 70s and a young adult in the 80s. Grew up with good music.

35 1995
36 1986

Great year, this was one of the last "careless" years of my mum I suppose, cause she was 17 and in 1987 she became an adult person. In 1986 came out such the hits like Papa Don't Preach and Open your heart from Madonna and Take on me, classics <3 My idol girl was born... Cassie, one of the most beautiful and sensual singers ever, if U don't believe me then U gotta watch Me&U, Long Way 2 Go, Official Girl, Paradise and Written in the stars. I think people born this year were very lucky cause perphaps they could fully experience 2000's, (they were 14-23 years old back then), 2010's (24-33) and could find out what it's like to be a 90's children (4-13). Don't forget this year was born Drake, Lindsay Lohan, Lady Gaga and Bart Baker

The age to have lived with out mobile phones while able to keep up with technology.

37 1970

Best year for cars

If you were born this year, you got all of the incredible music of the 70s, 80s, and 90s! - aviationgeek

38 1967

Yes! then not being slagged off.
I'm a millennial the slagged off decade.

Hell yeah, you get to be a teen in the prime years of the 80's!

Think about it - 13 in 1980, by 1990 you’re 23. You get to experience the 80s firsthand. Also, Sony Walkmans were just, around, which is worth a fortune nowadays. You’re in your 30s for the 2000s, 40s for the majority of 2010s, and you would’ve just turned 50 this year. 1967 is the best year

39 1 BC

A tale of a magicial man no he is not a God.
He is a human who was born with immortality he can survive through every decade he was born in 1 because and is still alive now.

It was before Jesus was born thank Billy for that.

1 because is the best!

40 1985
41 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.

Nope, this year sucked. - Aha223
