Three Dollar Bill was a queer punk zine by Deke Nihilson.

Published in San Francisco, California, U.S.A. in the early 1990's, Three Dollar Bill was the successor to Deke Nihilson's earlier zine Homocore, which was co-edited by Tom Jennings. Three Dollar Bill was co-edited with Clay Cadic for the first three issues.

Unlike the earlier zine, this publication was a photocopied, cut and paste publication. It included a mix of topics dealing with the political, the spiritual, queer punk rock and zines.

Issue one featured the band Tribe 8 on the cover and an interview inside, along with articles on Fat Oppression, Herbal Abortions, the Radical Faeries, a piece by the Devil's Advocate, reviews of books, recording and zines. Contributors included P. Paula P., Jose Mari, and Judith A. Stein. Zines reviewed in this issue included Bikini Kill, Bimbox, Chainsaw, Love and Rage, Mo-Funk, Taste of Latex and Too Many Closets.

The cover of issue two featured a photo from the "Rights Nights" riots of 1991, which had been released by police in an attempt to identify rioters, and is accompanied by a lyric from the Nation of Ulysses song, " A Kid Who Tells On Another Kid Is A Dead Kid". This issue features articles on the Stonewall Riots, First Amendment issues, rape, Youth Power, International Anarchist Congress in Mexico, and reprints of articles in Jigsaw on "Love Rock" by Al Larsen and Kathleen Hanna, pieces by the Devil's Advocate, artwork, comics and reviews of books and recordings. Issue two also included contributions by Verdi, Adam Seller, Harold Beard and Ryan X. Rubio, and reviews of the zines Agony, Boy With Gun, Girl Germs, Holy Titclamps, J.D.s, Jigaw, Mudflap, Special Offer!, Tantrum and Up Our Butts, .
