Generally selling out is applied to music.
Generally it is a term used by gatekeeping anti-capitalist hipsters to describe anything they don't like.
Usually means someone drastically changed their style
An artist who can only do one thing is lacking.
to try and make more money.
It's their job to be popular, and if they do their job well they will make money.

It's not their job to keep turning out the same old stuff year in year out to please some aging hipsters.

I said change their style drastically.

Pearl Jam for example us different to 1991 PJ but they don't sell out at the time.

And some artists have confessed to doing it as well eg Bowie.

Yes, a decent artist should be able to work in drastically different styles, and with different media. And once you have done something and it is recorded, is it pointless to keep doing the same thing.

A lot of artists are idiots. Bowie was doing his job and staying relevant - he was an idiot for guilt-tripping over it.

He said there was no passion in it and did it purely for the money in the early&mid 80's.

His words. Money's not everything.
 







If you make a few million and can't survive off it for the rest of your life espicially in the 1970's your doing something wrong.
