Wanna completely waste your money? Then we have got the ticket upgrade package for you!

Metalcore band Suicide Silence are being called out online for offering possibly the stupidest ticket upgrade we have ever seen - charging $150 for the chance to be in their road crew (aka pay to work for them).

The band posted details of the new package online yesterday (November 22nd), promising the "experience of a lifetime" which apparently includes such wonderful moments as "food with the crew", "work" and of course a "mingle with band during soundcheck". Not a meet and greet, oh no, a "mingle".

Obviously, given the insane levels of bullshit in this cynical offer, fans were quick to call out the group on social media:

It's been a rough week for the band in general as frontman Eddie Hermida was forced to apologise over allegations of sexual misconduct.

This deluxe road crew "experience" is the latest in a long line of upgrades bands and artists have implemented as touring becomes the most profitable area of the music industry.

What do you guys think? Would you pay $150 to shift some gear? Let us know your thoughts in the Facebook comments.
