"Going/went electric" is a phrase used to describe a music artist (usually rock music artist) who goes from acoustic-only guitar playing to electric guitar playing. Some people consider this as selling out in order to sell more records.
1. Many famous 1950s rock artists went electric in the 1960s when everyone got bored of the same old acoustic guitar playing.

2. Bob Dylan went electric in 1965.

3. Some folks don't like it when their favorite band decides that it's going electric, from acoustic.
