Should artists give you credit?

I did some quick work for a band am I am wondering if I should get credit? Is a band obligated to do so? I dont think so but I thought I would bring this topic up......

I prepared mixes for mastering. I was told to NOT TOUCH the final mixes. I asked 3 times and I listened to them. I bounced out the 24 bit files and made a refrence disk. I got a call later saying that they didnt like it. You know where this is going..... anyways I had to remix the bass guitars and a little vox work. Then I gave them another cd after they had an attitude (no extra cost). Then they said, "where are the bass drops". I didnt know there were supposed to be bass drops so I just put them in 2 songs.

The problem is I did these guys a favor and they are a young punk/emo type band that just gets attitudes with me. I think I am going to call them and tell them what I want. I dont know how else to handel this, I am helping them and doing favors and I get attitudes and they show up a hour late to pick their cd's up and just headaches!

So now I have to ask myself if I should get mixing credits. Its not a big deal but I did the work so I deserve that.....
