The act of changing yourself, your intrests, or everything about you to fit the majority. This can be applied to alot of things. Such as a good friend leaving you out to dry for personnal gains, or a music group changing their own style to sell records.

To abandon what is really you just so you can be "cool" in the eyes of everyone else.
My friends (sell outs): Hey lets go dress up in pink Polos and short khaki shorts and sperries and spend all our money on crown royal and take Daddy's BMW and go hang out with all those real rich preppy kids from school so we can be awesome and just maybe get laid from a couple of town bikes

Me: Have fun

I've seen a lot of definitions so far that arent really correct. But quit a few of them are right on point. A sell out is a person or person(s) that change to become more successful . It can also mean to conform to suit someone else.

An unpoppular band that someone likes may call that band a sell out when everyone starts liking them. Often it is these people who sold out when they became popular.

People also concider people such as bands, actors, actresses, and other icons ETC sellouts when they become very successful and popular. It seems the only way people can avoid selling out is to not become successful and unloved by people.

People who call others sellouts never think that these people who are accused of selling out to make money came it said business' to become successful in the first place.

The people who often concider people to be sellouts are often jealous assholes who want what they have.

See jealousy
The black eyes peas were concidered sell outs after changing one of their songs from "Lets Get Retarted" to "Lets get it Started" to fit the wants of their record lable and whinney bitches who felt offended.

the truth is..... all your definitions are wrong... you have to realize the difference between capitalism and selling out... selling out would be a punk band who says " fuck the man" then in 5 years goes and works for " the man" that is selling out.... 50 cent coming from the hood to making clothes and drinks and films with gunit in it is capitalism... that is making money by any which way you want and not having any limits. so you take advantage of that privliage and make your mother fucking money ....

get your mother fucking cake up and stop hating on people who are gettin thier cake up.... and by the way green day sucks period they have bad music regaurdless.
green day is horrible. blink 182 is horrible. any commerical"punk" is horrible. emo is horrible .. kill yourselfs

metallica didnt sell out... they just suck now

A word used by stuck up teenagers who think that if music is popular and the album gets into the top 10 then the band are automatically are rubbish and are terrible.
One of the most 'sellout' bands of our time is Green Day. I am a Green Day fan and I will freely admit that but I have friends who in 2000 liked Green Day but since American Idiot claim 'Green Day are shit! They are such sellouts!' And these people haven't even heard of Kerplunk. I don't think that any band has sold out. Every band sets out to make music and to hopefully be famous. Everyone wants a limo. Everyone wants £1m record contract.
Being rich doesn't mean you make rubbish music. It doesn't mean you don't care anymore. It just means you are rich and have a lot of fans.

And Good Charlotte? MTV from the start in my opinion.
(Silly person) Omg I love this band! I'll always love Green Day!
(Silly person 3 or 4 years down the line) I hate this band! They have never made a good song in their lives. I always hated them! Green Day are such sellouts.
