Best Years to Be Born

The Top Ten
1 1948

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.

I wouldn't mind being 72 now if I could have lived my whole teenage years in the 1960s. What an amazing decade.

Saw 2nd millennium

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

2 1989

The cartoons and the cereal and the food where amazing Christmas was the best in the 80s and it gives my memorable happy great feeling vibes!

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

Nina Dobrev, Phoebe Tonkin, such beautiful girls

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

3 2000

I'm honestly grateful I was born in 2000. I'm old enough to remember VCRs, dial up internet, and flip phones, but young enough to have enjoyed the convenience of 21st century technology in my adolescence.

I think that it's a nice time to be born in. I mean, we don't know the life without technology and computers, we are the generation that has had everything since the start- nice clothes, T.V., computers, all the gadgets. Anyway, 2000's wasn't so technological and computerised as 2010's and we could still esxperience a normal careless childhood+ 2000's was so a good era, I mean the time when on the top were JLO, Britney Spears, Rihanna and even Madonna. In 2010's we have had the sims 3, all the good computer games, consoles, kinect, T.V. series like The vampire diaries…

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.

Basically if you are a gay man, by the time you actually want to come out, a lot more people will be supportive of you. So really it's a great year to be born as you are only 16 now and it provides a much better coming out experience for any gay male.

4 1875

The height of civilisation

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

Better than 2001. First it is safe to say 2002 onwards, post 9/11, and solidly in the 2000's (some consider 2000 not to be in the 2000's, and those born in 2001 were probably largely conceived in late 2000 and therefore not as solidly in the 2000's), is nearly akin to a different generation, especially with people born prior to august 2001 not even experiencing covid in highschool. Also, late 2001 would have entered the 2020's as an adult, so really 2002 born onwards was markedly different. Someone born at midnight on january first 2002, would still have experienced some nanoseconds in 2020 as a 17 year old. This really highlights how different 2001 born and 2002 are from each other. Also, 2002 borns would have had more than half of their childhood in the 2010's, given that there are 10 whole years from age 3-12 (counting both 12 and 3) and 2002 borns would have been still 7 when 2010 started they would have had the entirety of 8-12 with some of 7 in the 2010's, while anyone born ...more

Right now if you where born in 2002 you would be 18. 18 is the year where it’s your first start your Basically s grown up but still is a child and you actually get to see the word and the great to the bad

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.

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

7 1933

Suga(Bts) was born

8 1955

I was born this year. Great music, liberation of women, and turned 18 just at the end of the Vietnam war. The world was changing and we had a front row seat. Yay - Baby Boomers!

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!

Same as '54, being in your teens during the 60s.

Ye best music

9 2004

I keep seeing early 2004 (such as the january post) talking about 2022 "gang". Well, they are just a month after 2003, yet no one in the 2003 section is talking about late 2003, and 2022. I wonder why?

I was born on the 200th day of 2004, July 18, not only are you 90s influenced as a toddler, but brought up with advanced medicine and not that much technology in the crucial years. A nice sweet spot. You also just have to add 5 to your age to remember what year your in :)

Literally the last year kids won't be slaves to tech all their childhood.

I was born in this year and I’m 14 now. There is a definite contrast from the people born in 2005. I was born in January so have the best part of the year. In 15-20 years, 2004 will be up in the top 5

10 2003

Late 2003 is currently aged 17 years (as of this writing in March of 2021). Amazing birth year anyway. Especially the latter part of the year (After July). Memories of 2006 Summer were the first. Youtube was already beginning to become popular, but some VCR exists in first memories. Much better than 2004, but definitely better than 2001 (imagine having 9/11 in your birth year). Second half was best, when it comes to 2003. First half would mean people could remember late 2005, which is not nearly as modern as Spring/summer of 2006 is. Having the internet since toddler years really makes for a different experience. Graduating in 2021/2022 is pretty good, but especially graduating in 2022. Covid will hopefully be gone by then. But either way, 2003 borns, and late 2002, were the first to experience a full year of covid/post-covid schooling. 2001/early 2002 will only have had a couple of months in the very last year. On the other hand, having had Covid begin in 10th grade is far more ...more

You would be 17 right now and A year after You will be going to collage seeing what life is really about and being a half grown up and a half kid

Perfect age as old enough to enjoy life at its fullest but young enough to be irresponsible

When I born to stars meet each other on that day it was brightest night of the year

The Newcomers

? 1943

A lot of rockstars were born this year such as Jim Morrison, Janis Joplin, and more. You also get to be in your 20s during the golden age of music and culture.

? 1940
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.

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!

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

Last year of the century enough said.

13 2006

Wow they had youtube, etc. Not my year, but still pretty good. Covid was largely a middle school phenomenon for them though, so not as interesting.

This is the best year, just wait you’ll see. First the talent. Second the brains. Third the everything else. This year is actually going places.

A lot of good gaming platforms came out that year. I was also born that year.

The very last year someone could be born with common sense.

14 2005

Because it sounds like a lucky number and and that is when I was born. just sounds like a perfect year to me and for people to be born.

It would be nice to have childhood at mid-end 2000s (well got half of it)
There is a time between year 2000 and 2005 is last real generation of old school I think generation y ends here not in 2003 but its edge because there is 2005 born kids z gen. who don't have common sense but still I think that I'm old school because 2000s the best decade!

I was born in November 30 2005, so a month and a day till it hit 2006. I wish I was born earlier but hey, at least I won’t live to see 2080, hopefully. I only had a month and a day to remember 2005, but seeing all these people born in 2006, I feel kinda proud to live through all of 2006, and born to see the 2006 New Year’s Day. I don’t know much about the year I was born in but due to my research, I have approximately 6 months before I turn 14 years old, should I check my back?

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.

15 2007

The first iPhone was out on this year also this is my birth year

We had spongebob at its finest sweetie! No way anyone beats 07

I was born and a lot of good movies came out that were good

Woah were gonna have an army soon

16 2001

2001 is way better than 2002. 2001 was the last birthyear to spend K-12 free of Covid-19, and the last year to remember the mid to late 2000s. Who wants to experience Covid in high school, like 2002+ borns? No one. Also, 2002 borns have faulty logic - late adolescence experience cannot make 2001 and 2002 different generations, get out of here.

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

Beginning of a new era, plus its officially 2000 era

Ay class of 2019 mhbois

17 1996

Best year of the 90s

It's just cool.

Spice Girls year!

Bad boy year!

18 1998

I was born in 1998. We graduated in 2016 before Trump was elected as president. So many other reasons why this is the best year. Also, as of 2020, we are turning 22!

Year I was born

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!

I was born in 1998, it was the best year for pop culture & we got to vote in the 2016 presidential election

19 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.

Just because my daughter was born

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.

A great year to be born.

Jungkook (Bts) was born

"1997 is the year when the problem solvers were born"~Malebo

21 1994

Best movie year, the shawshank redemption - pulp fiction - lion king

This is the year because rap was going crazy.

They were the best years of my life

Peace and love worldwide!

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!

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

I was born then so...

23 1969

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

Because 69 lol

24 2008

I am pretty grateful for being born in this year, when the 2021 tiktokers get too older, us the 2008's kids are going to show what beauty really is

first of all fortnite sucks and 2008 was the 2nd best year for economical growth in history, also people in 2010 play fortnite cause they suck

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.


25 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.
