when a band or something abandons what theyre viewed as and change to a more higher paid stream where they satisfy posers and mainstream jockies and concert invaders who only know 2 or 3 songs claiming to be huge fans
Person 1: Ugh Kings of Leon are such sell outs!
Person 2: Right!, you win a Grammy and get on the radio and then continue with horrible music.

Guy: Hey have you guys heard "Tighten Up" on the radio? I Love The Black Keys, i bet they'll win that grammy.

Person 1 & 2: NOOOOOOO! Not The Black Keys!

1. A band that allowed its beliefs to be compromised for the sake of making money, or as they sometimes say, "distributing their music better."

2. According to many people here, word said out of jealousy for some bands fame. However, these people wouldn't understand of course, because they live in a world where music is made primarily for fortune and fame, whereas others who use the word for the previous (and proper) definition listen to music thats created out of devotion, not to make money.

While yeah money is needed to be able to survive in the world, there are bands out there that don't play on the radio or give MTV permission to sell them (thats the catch.. MTV sells BANDS, not MUSIC), and yet these bands have HEAPS of fans.

I'm not saying selling out is WRONG, but i am saying that i disagree with the idea of selling out and i don't respect sellouts that much.

To all those people who say "Sellout" is used just cuz people are jealous of some bands' success, then all I can say is that i don't blame you for thinking that; it's a concept too complex for your simple brains to handle, so why don't you just go off and watch some MTV, eh? You'll never change.
Cheers
Previously "Punk" bands like Blink 182, The Ataris, The Offspring and Sum 41 abandoned their DIY beliefs because they wanted more money. Sellouts arent confined to punk music; it infects every music genre. After all, money makes the world go round.
