Best Years to Be Born


The Top Ten

1 1948

First of all not the best year to be born because homosexuality is criminalised and Black Men and women are also oppressed by many people including America, Australia, much of Europe. This is a horrible time to live through if you are gay, or a different skin tone. - DJSchollen

Don't forget about the Communist revolutions taking place around the world. - ethanmeinster

How does one "live through" 30s blues if one is born in 1948? And what in particular is wrong with 30s blues, which ultimately gave birth to rock 'n' roll?

Live through every year of good music (well exept 30s blues and some 40s country - Brobusky

Perfect for economic advantages.
Careers expanding.

2 1989

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"


Yass! Party like its 1989!

80s influenced, 90s raised and 2k tech savvy.

3 2000

Probably the last fantastic year to be born (also the year I was born). Back when technology was booming, the world was pre-9/11, great songs such as Beautiful Day by U2, great shows on Cartoon Network and Nickelodeon, and great movies such as Almost Famous and Meet the Parents. - Disneykid00

It's the last millennium of the human race or is it. True story. Will we manage not to start a world war? 1000 years.

Born in the Year of the Dragon, son! - ModernSpongeBobSucks

Each decade will correspond with our teens (2010s), twenties (2020s), thirties (2030s) and so forth. 00’s represent!

4 1875

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 1933
7 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!

8 2002

The year I was born! - Brobusky

2002 when I was born 2020 when I graduate

I was born on that year

I was born in this year! 18 in 2020! fresh for the twenties and for some reason this year fits perfectly with my OCD 😂

10 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

Even this year is awful, I wish I could be born in early 20th century.

Better smart phones coming out I mean come on. 2003 all the way

Allamassal just got roasted.

The Newcomers

? 1985
? 666

The year of the beast lol

The Contenders

11 1949
12 1999

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

Not only are we the last of the 90's babies, but we are also one of the last generations to have a childhood without crazy amounts of technology. Now when I see 6-year-olds playing on iPads and kids in elementary school on smartphones. Not that technology is bad, I'm glad that I had a chance to experience part of my life solely on my imagination.

Also, CLASS OF 2017 unite!

Will someday be the last people alive from before the 2000s

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

14 1996

Bad boy year!

15 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.

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

16 2006

You will have a amazing life

I've had so much luck

Going into middle school. 😘

17 1969

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

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

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

18 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

19 2007

This was the year I was born!

Woah were gonna have an army soon

20 2005

Still a good year, but this is when the world started to go downhill.

The year that YouTube was born.

People actually made sense and less problems

I was born on April 27th, 2005

21 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.

22 1998
23 1992

My year!

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 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.

26 1802

I was born so yh obviously best year
-your dad

27 1975
28 1990

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.

29 1349

1349 was when a pile of dirt was born


30 1986

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

31 1980

You got to live through the 90s in your teenage years

32 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

They are only babies at the moment.
They are the people who could actually see the year 3000?

33 1967

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

34 2008
35 1000

Yeah well much with many diseases and remember there weren't ANY electronic devises in that time so yeah much fun:3

36 1964

Badass I think

You are the last of the Boomers, yet you could also relate to Gen X.

37 1984
38 1954
39 1970

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