Someone who goes against their beliefs for some kind of gain.

Therefore, just product placement wouldn't make some one a sellout. Unless they believe it's wrong to do so, and do it anyway.

That's not being a sell out, damn it. If they would rather make money than music, then they believe that money is more important, and therefore they are not selling out their ethics!

Very True, the only time that a muscian sells out is when he is clearly in it for the music, then turns to the dark side and goes and changes themselves solely to sell records, if its natural progression then fine, but selling out is just wasting your morals to get the almighty dollar

I'm going to punch you. Kiss had the intention of doing what they're doing when they started out. There is clearly no selling out there.

And I'm not really going to punch you.

I'm sorry..

The example from if you're in school is if you spend 4 of your 5 years at school with 4 specific people every break and dinner, then suddenly stop spending time with them coz you're spending time with 2 or 3 different people without any real reason or explanation, then you have sold your friends out.

well i just really think that a KISS MasterCard, or visa is a bit far. Along with the production of KISS coffins. Just a tad too far, imo.

a sellout is someone who goes against what they believe in for money or fame. KISS are not sellouts because they've wanted money and fame since day one.

That was just a natural progression of style. They did not sell-out.

Have you noticed how, when they started up, Screamo was becoming popular.

Their first album is, wait a minute, screamo

Then screamo became really big

and their next album was, wait another minute, Screamo

Then, Screamo began to become old, and soft, rock, indie became more popular

and then their next album was, oh, soft rock

hmmmm....

That's not even right. Their first album was nu-metal. Their second album was heavy mainstream rock. Their third is basically a pop-rock album, but it sounds very typical of their style, and the progression lies in the fact that they became more cohesive and more mainstream with each album. The cohesive aspect is obviously a matter of experience, and the gradual slip into the mainstream only occurred because they improved as songwriters (yes, the music got more complex from first to second album) and they had access to better production.

The term "sell-out" definitly gets thrown around way too much, most commonly at successful artists for absolutely no reason whatsoever.

Perfect Example: Metallica. Making a music video isn't selling out. Expirimenting with other genres isn't selling out (IMO, it's pretty ballsy, especially after a monster album like TBA). If at all, they sold out on St. Anger or Death Magnetic only because their fans wanted them to take the "heavier, more metal" direction. I'm sure they had lots of cash thrown at them for it, but they were trying to pleasing their fans all the while.

Sorry for kinda necro-posting but I felt this was the most appropriate thread for the matter.

This. Changing your style isn't selling out. Selling out is changing your style SOLELY for the reason of making money. Even then, there's nothing wrong with it. If somebody is in music for the money, let them be. As long as there are people who listen to them, it doesn't matter what kind of music they make.
Chinese Democracy is a great album, people need to get over Slash.

Proud fan of Pop, Rap, Rock, and Metal.

most people just call a person/band 'sellouts' when they start becoming too popular for their liking.

selling out, is, basically, changing style or sacrificing morality/beliefs for financial or personal gain.

Hit the nail in the ballsack.

And therefore this proves how no-one can become a sellout, as their morals will change if they are offered the money.

Oh man, you're so right. I used to love that band. I'd go and see them when they were still a small time metal(ish) group trying to get a break. Then over night they become this massive internationally recognised band who all wear make-up, clothes that are too small for them and play music to hoards of screaming 13 year old girls. Wtf happend, that wasn't them at all.

AC/DC were big and mainstream when they started.

they're less mainstream now if you think about it. they always have fun on stage and seem to just be in it for the fun these days, they've made their fortunes.

Most composers before the late 1700s/early 1800s made music under the patronage system. That is, rich people would pay the composers to write music for them. If the rich people didn't like it, the composers would have to change it... or be out of a job.

Did they sell out?
