It All Started In 2010
YouTube Rewind made its first release in 2010. That edition featured the top ten most popular videos of that year. The annual videos continued all the way to 2019. The 2018 edition was one of the most disliked videos of that series, despite featuring many stars.
A 2020 edition was not released due to the events of that year. But people also believed that it was due to the poor reception of the previous two videos.
Rewind Is Done
YouTube Rewind is no longer part of the plans for the video site. But the editions that were released throughout the years have brought a ton of memes and moments that are still being used by creators as part of their videos.
