As I can't think of a band that doesn't try to sell you something I'm gonna have to say all of them.... to some degree at least.

So all the standard generic-core bands we know and love

and surprisingly I'm serious about the love part

All of them. No matter how much you claim that you're in it for the music, at the end of the day all that means is you've chosen a life in music as your career. If you weren't in it for the money, you'd be doing free gigs, releasing free CDs and never selling anything whilst having to earn a living elsewhere.

If music is your career, you're in it for the money. Fact.

Wow, being surrounded by all of these humourless, pussy-whipped virgins is starting to make me sick.

Check out my band!

Such a daft way of looking at it.

You're are saying that anybody doing a job they love, and getting paid to do so, is solely doing it for the money? Can't say I agree, but whatever...
#23
"What bands do you think aren't in it just for the money?"

This question has a shorter answer.

I would say Mastodon and Opeth. And Berri Txarrak, they're worth a listen.
#25
I'd assume every single artist loves music. So it's not only for the money. Partly for the money however. Sure. Any rock band that sings about rocking. Seems a bit cliché and generic and I doubt they care about what they do as long as they get to rock and earn money and drink beer.
sometimes I see us in a cymbal splash or in the sound of a car crash
#26
All bands? Everyone wants to make money from what they love doing. Of course there are some bands who are worse who ***** out their name, like Kiss.

I'd love to be in a band and make good money from it. Just sayin.

musicians, generally speaking, are in it for the whole package. The playing music on stage, the glory of finishing mastering an album or song, the glory of finishing recording an album or song, all the fun of the road and having a tour bus, the amount of promotion and gear, the relatively glamorous lifestyle, the roadies, the pussy, etc.

I never said they did, doesn't stop them from trying.

EDIT: They make a decent amount, not a "TON", but enough to put out music videos every so often.

As for "highelf" Not really, when I think of -core, or generic core, I think deathcore, but there are still some very good deathcore bands, belay my last, the redchord, chainsaw disaster, through the eyes of the dead, the faceless, etc.
But I'm talking about the like Abandon all ship, attack attack, brokencyde, sort of stuff.

Pink Floyd.


The band turned down a £136 million (then about $250 million) deal for a final tour.


Following almost two decades of acrimony the band reunited in 2005 for a single performance, at the charity concert Live 8.

I enjoy my job, but there's no chance in Hell I'd do it if I wasn't getting paid.

this is ridiculous... I'm sure the members of most of the bands named in this thread enjoy playing their instrument and enjoy playing their songs. Obviously they would enjoy the benefits of it all too, who doesn't want to be rewarded for doing what they love? but JUST for the money? bah, you're all (or at least the majority of you all) just ignorant or jealous pricks.
