From the film school of rock, one of the characters says that he is "not cool enough to be in the band"
This is used in the context that to be in the band is to be in with a group of cool people.
1:Hey have you seen John in collage today?
2:Yer he was over there with all those indies
1:Obviously were not cool enough to be in the band with him.
2:I know, lets go solo.

"Band for band" references showing off your money in bands, i.e. $1000 denominations. Term used by degenerate Dollhouse players who stay on Discord and ROBLOX all day, whilst simultaneously not having shit to their name. If you use this definition unironically you're most likely broke as fuck to begin with.

TL;DR term used by broke boys trying to talk shit.
somewhatnormalguy100: "yo, you know it isn't cool to act like a piece of shit towards random people just playing games, right?"

soundcloud_minor_groomer: "neva asked for yo opinion 😹😹😹 drop the dizzy right now real talk, count up band for band."

*soundcloud_minor_groomer, not having any money whatsoever, later on proceeds to ask his discord friends for nitro*

For about six years, from 1968 through 1975, the Band was one of the most popular and influential rock groups in the world, their music embraced by critics (and, to a somewhat lesser degree, the public) as seriously as the music of the Beatles and the Rolling Stones. Their albums were analyzed and reviewed as intensely as any records by their one-time employer and sometime mentor Bob Dylan. And for a long time, their personalities were as recognizable individually to the casual music public as the members of the Beatles.

A group of people who come together to play music. Often comes in two forms in popular usage:

1. A high school band. These tend to be tight-knit groups of kids who all either love or hate what they do. Their shows tend to show great musical skill and/or choreography.

2. A rock band. These tend to be tight-knit groups of people who all either love their music or the money they earn from it. Their shows are either dull or explosive.
The band is playing at 4:30 at the football game, and then Bill is playing with his band at 8:00 after the game.
