    Three years after the release of their last album, Green Day released three albums simultaneously, a trilogy collectively known as ¡Uno!, ¡Dos!, and ¡Tre! The American punk band invited aspiring filmmakers to pick any song from one of their three new albums and create a music video to represent what the song means to them. The winner will not only have their video featured on Green Days's official website, but is also set to receive a Canon EOS 5D Mark III Digital Camera and be featured in an interview on Green Day's website.

    Additionally, four finalists will be picked, and each of their videos would be featured on the website as well.

    Kyle Stein won this contest with his animated music video "Nuclear Family." This was Kyle's first Flash animation, and as he was concerned an animated video wouldn't qualify for the contest, it must have come as a pleasant surprise when his video won both the winner and the highest voted. Good job, Kyle!

    Winner: Kyle Stein


    Below are the videos from finalists Eric Thomas Craven, Jacob Fitzgerald, Cristian Scardigno, and Jamison Donoho. Congratulations!

    Livermore just released his memoir Spy Rock Memories on June 4, 2013. Here's a brief description of the book:

    In 1982 Larry Livermore, ex-greaser, post-hippie, burnt out and disillusioned by the Bay Area punk scene, journeyed north into an off the map, off the grid mountain wilderness that lay at the heart of California's Emerald Triangle in search of something "real." Things got way more real than he'd bargained for, as he ended up confronting blizzards, droughts, floods, fires, marauding bears, skunks, rattlesnakes, and a posse of ornery pot growers, all while launching a magazine, a solar-powered punk rock band, and the DIY record label that introduced the world to the likes of Green Day, Operation Ivy, and Screeching Weasel. As he learned valuable lessons in self-sufficiency, taking responsibility, and how to avoid (for the most part but not always) getting punched in the face by irate hippies, Larry also found his place and made his home in the far-flung, disjointed and eccentric community he encountered in the anarchic realm that begins where Highway 101's tattered tarmac dissolves into the dust of Spy Rock Road.
