watch Daughters burn $1400 royalty check

A video posted yesterday purports to show Rhode Island band Daughters burning their "last Robotic Empire royalty check." That would mean the $1,400 check is for earnings from the band's 2003 album, Canada Songs, an album which sold pretty well.

So, either Daughters hate money, as the video title claims, or, Robotic Empire simply cancelled the check and issued a new one. You decide.

All you need to do now is take a picture of your check through a bank app and it will automatically go into your bank account.

I hate pennies, even dimes, but anyone who hates 14 hundred bucks for some shit they did like 10 years ago is a goddamn retard.
