Just off the top of my head, Jay-Z is worth 450 million and P.Diddy is worth 550 million, that'd put them in the upper echelon of wealthy musicians.
Which proves my point -- they're more than rappers (Diddy is hardly even a rapper). They're businessmen, with stakes in a lot of other big assets.

Some of this list makes no sense. But I guess it's interesting.

Most recently, I've seen Paramore headline:

2012: Terminal 5 (3500 capacity, not sold out)
2011: Penn's Landing (10,000 capacity, not sold out)
2009: Hammerstein (4000 capacity, sold out)
2008: Convention Hall (4000 capacity, sold out)
2007: Starland (2500 capacity, sold out)
2007: Knitting Factory (400 capacity, sold out)

I've seen them a few times in other capacities like festivals, but those are their four most recent US headline tours.

They make a LOT more money overseas playing to thousands (and sometimes tens of thousands), and Hayley also makes a good amount independent of what the band makes. She's also probably a lot smarter with her money than a lot of other acts.
Terminal 5, not sold out? You're crazy

weird, thought Gwen makes more than Dave.
same with Hayley & Gerard
Steve Perry should be higher up, espcially above Billy Corgan
didn't know M. Shadows is worth 20 million, crazy!
Linkin Park seem like one of the biggest bands right now, didn't think Chester would be that low on the list

Surprised Hayley Williams is worth 8 million. I know Paramore is pretty popular, but it's not like they headline arena tours.

the honda civic tour was an arena tour, No Doubt's reunion tour was in arenas\amphitheaters

It may have sold out at showtime, but most certainly not before.

I was surprised, too, but I can tell you for a fact that I went with friends who showed up and bought tickets at the door.

Fred Durst - 8 million. Where did all his money go? 30+ million records sold. A good 5 year run at the top.

it's gotta be their total worth, like as if they were to die and all their estates and contracts and whatnot were all put together on top of their current amounts and earnings
gotcha, that makes sense.

I'm not familiar with all of the venues on Paramore's 2010 Honda Civic tour, but looking over the list most of the ones I do know hold between 5-9K people. Wouldn't really call that an arena tour. And they didn't headline the No Doubt reunion tour. Anyways, its great she is doing so well for herself, it just surprised me.

Dave Grohl is the richest badass in the world. He should actually have been on both lists because he is a drummer at heart.

I am actually genuinely surprised Chad Kroeger isn't higher.

He's definitely a rapper. How good of one is an entirely different debate.
