A term used to describe individuals (usually an ethnic minority) who reject their native cultures and aggressively embrace a dominant culture so they can get delusional notions of "fitting in" or feeling superior

The term has significantly lost some of its meaning because of how Asian men and black women abusively label their respective partners as "sellouts" for dating white people
Asian Guy 1: Carla is the biggest sellout ever; she's going out with a white guy!

Asian Guy 2: Oh yeah? So she also hates her Chinese culture? Refuses to date Chinese men? Belittles Chinese people?

Asian Guy 1: Um no, she's cool about being Chinese but she goes out with white guys

Asian Guy 2: That's not being a sellout; maybe if she did all of the ff. then she would be one

An urban myth given by people who have nothing better to do than slag off people in the music world who have found a way of making money. Selling out usually involves a rock band being played on the radio. Even though the songs sound the same, people don't really care. if its on the radio, it sucks, even thought it has been liked before. It is used by the following people:
1) small minded teenagers who decide things aren't cool cause more than one person listens to them
2) rock mags like kerrang who decide that bands who are liked by more than one person are scum of the earth (but in nicklebacks case, they were right. That band really does suck)
I'm a dick. I heard another kid sing a Blink-182 song so they have sold out. I'm a judgemental Bastard
