2020 has earned the reputation of one of the worst years ever. A band called Avenue Beat even made a song about how much 2020 sucks. The artists describe how bad of a year 2020 was and how they can’t wait for it to soon be over. As if that wasn’t proof enough, there’s also a trend on TikTok in which creators use the “F2020” song and list all the bad things that happened to them in during the year. While 2020 does have a bad reputation, there are many great things that have come from the year.
