    I can only think of one, and it's "Rock N Roll Band" by Boston. And even then there's only a few lines that talk about being a broke rock band

    "On the road to try to make ends meet

    Playin all the bars, sleepin in our cars

    And we practiced right on out in the street

    No, we didn't have much money

    We barely made enough to survive"
