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

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

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. - DJSchollen

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.

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

The Newcomers

? 1945

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

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 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

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

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 2005

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

People actually made sense and less problems

The year that YouTube was born.

19 1997
20 2006

You will have a amazing life

I've had so much luck

21 1992

23 1991
24 1802

-your dad

25 1973

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

26 1998
27 1975
28 1980
29 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?

30 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

31 2009
32 1000

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

33 1990
34 1964

Badass I think

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

35 1984
36 1986

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

37 1349
38 1503
39 1976
40 2014

It was such a good year! Germany won the World cup and the song Happy was released!

41 1954
42 2019

The year Ellie from The Last Of Us was born I hope that in 2033 there ain't apocalypse of zombie which could destroy the world. Anyway, I was born in 2000 but it could be also cool born in the last year of 2010's

43 1970

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