Betraying their beliefs or altering their style of music in order to become successful.

EDIT: Since you can't truly know the intentions the musicians had when they first decided to write in a different style, it's difficult to distinguish sellouts from those whose music has evolved. Few musicians are actually sellouts, it's just a term which gets banded about a lot.

According to most pit monkeys, you sell out if you change your music in a way that does not please these pit monkeys - seems perfectly logical.

Changing your musical style not because of the creativity, but because of the profit.

Personally I don't mind bands selling out, at the end of the day its their job and who wouldn't mind a raise?

No offense, but you're hardly in the position to complain about bad threads. I think you might just win this years 'worst threadstarter' award.

And last year's. I don't care if someone already has it, we need to take it away from them so petrina can put it on her mantlepiece, because she has definitely made 2 years worth of threads.

I don't remember seeing you around till more recently, but you've more than made up for it with the amount of threads you make, many of which are (no offense or anything) just plain annoying.

I find them pretty entertaining most of the time. Everytime I see one of her threads I get a nice opportunity for trolling.

It must be said that her 'does porn degrade women?' thread spawned a highly philosophical discussion which I enjoyed quite a lot - so she's not all that bad, now is she?

Can't you get banned for that?

You become a "sell out" when you release an album which is different to your last album, and someone liked the first album better.

Sometimes to me it seems a band becomes a sell out the second they release an album which is actually good and isnt a barrrage of pointless noise, like, say, most black metal. Except Dimmu Borgir. But wait, there sellouts arent they, there not even considered black metal.
