v1.0.0 Pre-release 2 (il n'y aura pas de version définitive avant v1.0 / there won't a definitive version before v1.0)

J'ai pensé à faire un top de mes chansons préférées de la décennie, mais j'ai vite été découragé par le fait d'avoir à mettre en compétition des vieilles chansons que je n'aime plus et aussi par le fait que ce serait rempli de Nirvana. J'ai alors réalisé que, surtout après avoir vu le honteux top 90 de Musique Plus (Loser de Beck #2, Alive au lieu de Jeremy pour Pearl Jam, Killing in the Name de R.A.T.M. au #10, etc...), ce serait d'un plus grand intérêt de faire encore un top des plus grands de la décennie!!! Pour les curieux que je décevrais, la chanson que j'ai le plus aimé au cours de la décennie serait sûrement Lithium de Nirvana, probablement suivie de About a Girl de Nirvana, avec aussi dans le top 10 trois chansons de Guns n' Roses, Home d'Econoline Crush, Resurrection de Moist, Paranoid Android de Radiohead, Unbelievable de E.M.F. et Du Hast de Rammstein.

Avertissement: Le top ne représente pas mes goûts; si j'ai exclus des chansons de Bryan Adams, Sheryl Crow, Roxette, Hanson ou autres du genre, c'est à cause de ma définition de "rock" qui n'inclus pas les chansons de groupes/artistes pop rock (sur ce critère, j'y suis moins tolérant que pour le top de groupes!).

I thought of making a top of my favorite songs of the decade, but I've quickly been discouraged by having to make compete old songs that I don't like anymore and also by the fact is would be full of Nirvana. Then, after having seen the  top 90 of Musique Plus (Loser from Beck at #2, Alive instead of Jeremy as Pearl Jam's grestest hit, Killing in the Name from R.A.T.M. at #10, etc...), I realized it would be of a greater interest to make, again, another top of the decade!!! For you curious guys that I'd deceive, the song I liked the most in the decade would be Lithium from Nirvana, followed by About a Girl, also from Nirvana, with also in the top 10 three songs from Guns n' Roses, Home from Econoline Crush, Resurrection from Moist, Paranoid Android from Radiohead, Unbelievable from E.M.F. and Du Hast from Rammstein.

Warning: This top isn't supposed to represent my own tastes at all; if I exclude songs from Bryan Adams, Sheryl Crow, Roxette, Hanson and others like that, it's just because of my definition of "rock" that doesn't include songs from pop rock artists (I tolerate less pop then for the top of rock bands).

*Année de parution sur disque et non année de parution à la radio, non parce que c'est plus logique mais simplement parce que c'est beaucoup moins difficile à trouver.
*Release year of the record the song's on, not the year of the release on the radio, not because it's more logical but simply because it's much easier to find.

Comprenez ma difficulté à placer les pièces d'Our Lady Peace; la plupart (comme Superman's Dead) ont été beaucoup plus populaires au Canada qu'aux États-Unis, donc j'ai essayé de faire des compromis entre les deux.
Please understand that it was pretty tough ranking the songs from Our Lady Peace; most of them (like Superman's Dead) have been much more popular in Canada than United States, so I tried to compromise the best I can.
