MTV's 'Green Day: Rock Band' Contest: We Have A Winner!
Last week, in celebration of the release of "Green Day: Rock Band," we announced a very cool contest. One lucky Green Day fan could win a "Rock Band 2" guitar autographed by Billie Joe Armstrong, Mike Dirnt and Tré Cool. All they had to do was submit a video explaining just why Green Day rocks.
