Green Day fans got their first taste of the band's '¡Quatro!' documentary late last year when VH1, MTV2 and Palladia aired a highlights special featuring clips from the film. Now fans will get to see '¡Quatro!' in its entirety when it screens at the upcoming X Games competition being held in Aspen Jan. 26.

It was soon after Green Day began to launch into their '¡Uno!, ¡Dos!, ¡Tré!' tour in September when frontman Billie Joe Armstrong suddenly entered rehab for unspecified substance abuse. After an uncertain three months, Green Day have announced their triumphant return with a string of 2013 North American tour dates.
Although the spot was cut from the final version of the film during the editing process, Green Day frontman Billie Joe Armstrong played a cameo role as himself in the latest Judd Apatow film, ‘This is 40.’ While the clip doesn't appear on the big screen, fans can now check out the lost footage online, seen below.
Green Day have got love on the brain, while their toes are firmly dipped in the influences of eras gone by on '¡Dos!, the second album of their new trilogy. The disc even has a old-school pacing, clocking in at just under 40 minutes, but taking 13 tracks to get there. The quick-hitting nature of the songs makes the album a more immediate listen that seems to fly by.
Green Day being down a rehabbing member hasn't kept them from releasing new music and even creating music videos. Rather than the band starring in the clip for their latest single, 'Stray Heart,' they've served up a concept video in which the stars are a guy with a gaping hole and his extremely mobile heart.
