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.

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

Black people had it great!

No this is the year israel was created

Saw 2nd millennium

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"

Nina Dobrev, Phoebe Tonkin, such beautiful girls

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

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

3 2000

Our entire childhood was war, now our adult life is only peace time

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.

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!

4 1875

It's a old time

The height of civilisation

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.

I feel like if I was born then I could have more experiences with 2000s memories

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

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!

7 1933

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!

Ye best music

9 2004

2022 gang rise up
Also the youngest so had all the cool stuff from the 90s

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 of 90s influence

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

10 2003

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

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.

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

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!

Last year of the century enough said.

13 2005

Born in 2005. Incredibly sad. Not saying there's any correlation I just also happen to really dislike every year from 2017 on. 1998 would've been a good year to be born due to graduating in 2016. Would've graduated college during coronavirus unfortunately, but excluding the disaster that is 2020, 1998 would've been best in my opinion.

lets go 2005 wast year we got through life through the best rap years and got to watch a lot of big movie hits

Lets go boys! I'm born in this year, vote for it if you are too, where are all my 14 year old/ 15 year olds at?

I was born on November 28th, 2005
It was such a fun year to be born in with great television shows on nick, disney and cartoon network.

14 2006

way better than any other year last year kids aren't crazy and not too bold

You get to experience the 2010-2013 which will be the best time in your life’s and yeah life is great

Best year to be born because all of your childhood will consist of iOS 6 iPads,iPhone 4s love from parents

You will have a amazing life

15 2007

2007 is when all of the Disney princess movies started coming our left and right, and we actually have commen sense unlike the people born in 2008

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

16 1996

Best year of the 90s

Bad boy year!

Spice Girls year!

It's just cool.

17 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

Specifically January 2001

Beginning of a new era, plus its officially 2000 era

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.

Naw It's a bad year

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.

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

19 1998

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


Can't beat it

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 1994

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

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

22 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

Because 69 lol

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

23 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

My year!

Seems god!

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 1977

All things great happened in 1977 Star Wars good music punk rock. My birth lol

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

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!

Best year of all time!
