Re: Who is the biggest sell out?

Lets see....first youa re a nobody...then you make it big..then you are called a sellout then you act really weird....

Isn't that how it always is....nothing new...its almost expected of a pop artist to evolve in this manner.Madonna perfected it...

Personally I wounld care if I was called a sell out.

Mo Money Mo Money Mo Money!

Radiohead.

Well they never were "Pop", but speaking on "career suicide"... they gradually became more & more popular, till they peaked in OK Computer, that was an epic success & got elected as "the millennium album" by numerous music pols, and then decided to say "fuck all y'all", and put out Kid A & Amnesiac.

To be fair this might actually be the biggest 180 degree turn.

I suppose Tim Waits was once a lounge signer / crooner. Also, it would be hard pressed to call them pop, but Autechre started out vaguely more intelligible then where they ended up (although I don't know their catalogue too well).

Re: Who is the biggest sell out?

What does sell out really mean?

Earning mega money for your music?
or going a different direction to make more money?

I wonder how many people would sell out given half the opportunity

Think about it. It's really still Metallica. A concert film that's a movie about a stagehand who gets into adventures while getting something for Metallica. Imax.

Re: Who is the biggest sell out?

a lot of people don't understand this concept of 'selling out', for whatever reason. Some artists can't technically sell-out, because they have nothing to sell. Like bands that write formulaic repetitive pop music or mostly mindless dance music (daft punk) becoming famous and ending up on TV, that's not worth mentioning they made family-friendly music. or maybe not i don't know i don't listen to daft punk. but the actual details are important, it's not just about being signed to one of the 4 major labels, it's selling your soul to become rich. The equivalent of blowing a bunch of dirty crackheads and drug addicts for money, degrading yourself for fame, etc etc etc.

Metallica, back in the 1980s, had these bumper stickers that said 'Bon Jovi must die!', because they hated Bon Jovi (supposedly). They had gained a following also with their heavy metal, anti-government lyrics, and generally writing songs about things that were commercially viable, basically. if you look a little deeper yeah they were always trying to get rich and famous but,

Then they made an album using bon jovi's producer, Bob 'Pop' Rock. So, hypocrisy for one. Then there was the actual album, the black album..a bunch of dumbass shit about the boogie man, werewolves, brokedick cowboy song, etc. It defined cheese-metal..but it was something that children could get into and lame-ass dads so it became huuuuge (through commercialism). but they completely changed their message, went back on their principles, and pretty much turned into a different band for the money, pissing on the following that made them popular to begin with. that is selling out

Seriously though... you don't gain anything from doing this at all. If anything everyone should focus on something that can better their production skills or w.e. that you're trying to accomplish.
