No amount of money, money, money will put ABBA back together again. Group masterminds Björn Ulvaeus and Benny Andersson tell the London Telegraph that "we will never appear onstage again."

"There is simply no motivation to regroup," Ulvaeus said. "Money is not a factor and we would like people to remember us as we were: young, exuberant, full of energy and ambition."

The remarks came just days after the four members—Ulvaeus, Andersson, Agnetha Fältskog and Anni-Frid Lyngstadappeared together for the first time in more than a quarter-century. They teamed up for the Swedish premiere of the new big-screen musical Mamma Mia!, based on their ridiculously popular catalog.

ABBA hasn't preformed together since 1982 but continues to sell nearly 3 million records a year.

In 2000, the group reportedly turned down $1 billion to reunite for a concert tour.
