At its very core are the customer and his or her satisfaction. In simple terms, "the customer is king".
In politics[ edit ] In political movements a "sellout" is a person or group claiming to adhere to one ideology, only to follow these claims up with actions contradicting them, such as a revolutionary group claiming to fight for a particular cause, but failing to continue this upon obtaining power.
An example of political "selling out" is a political party who has formed a coalition with another party it had historically opposed, such as the Liberal Democrats ' leader Nick Clegg 's coalition with the Conservative Party after the general election in the United Kingdom, during which he reneged on his pledge to oppose any increase in student tuition fees.
First, there is the use of the term "sell out" to refer to those who sign for major labels or to those who licence their music to companies for use in advertising  that contradicts their apparent values.
Secondly, the expression can refer to those who sacrifice their musical integrity through a change in their musical sound, sometimes due to pressure from major labels  or in order to gain profit by making their music more appealing to a mainstream audience.
Record labels and advertising[ edit ] Since the time of big band radio shows there has been an established relationship between musicians and commercialisation.
There had been some signs of resistance to this model as early as the s, when gospel group The Blind Boys of Alabama refused to sign record deals to record secular music. Another definition of "selling out" refers to putting aside musical quality or original intentions in favor of commercial success,  where a distinction is made for those who achieve success without changing their original sound.
While this perceived inauthenticity is viewed with scorn and contempt by members of the subculture, the definition of the term and to whom it should be applied is subjective. While the term is most associated with the s- and s-era punk and hardcore subculture, English use of the term originates in the late 19th century.
Product placement, or embedded marketing, is the placement of brands or products in media in order to advertise,  and has been in television from almost the very beginning, but has increased with introduction of devices such as DVRs which allow viewers, and therefore consumers, to fast-forward through adverts.
Stand-up comedians occasionally face accusations of "selling out. A comic who alters his or her routine by "sugar-coating" his language and using less-offensive material to obtain mainstream success may be accused of "selling out.
In his album You Are All Diseasedwhich contains rants against advertising and business, Carlin admits the dichotomy but makes no attempt to explain himself, stating, "You're just gonna have to figure that shit out on your own.
This conclusion is often due to the perception that the reason for the artist changing artistic style or direction was simply potential material gain.
This ignores other causes of artistic developmentwhich may lead an artist in new directions from those that attracted their original fans. Artists' improvements in musical skill or change in taste may also account for the change.
Other times, artists including those with politically oriented messages resent the term on the grounds that the perceived desire for material gain is simply a result of the band seeking to expand its message.
To such artists, not going mainstream or signing to a bigger label to avoid "selling out" prevents them from addressing a wider audience, regardless of whether or not there is any real artistic change, and arbitrarily hampers the artists' course of mainstream success.
Such an accusation, then, assumes that mainstream success must be against the artists' original intentions. For example, when questioned about signing to a major label, Rage Against the Machine answered "We're not interested in preaching to just the converted.
It's great to play abandoned squats run by anarchists, but it's also great to be able to reach people with a revolutionary message, people from Granada Hills to Stuttgart ".
It's not something we chose to do The fact was we got to a point that we were so big that tons of people were showing up at punk-rock clubs, and some clubs were even getting shut down because too many were showing up.
We had to make a decision: And I'll be damned if I was going to flip fucking burgers. I do what I do best.Words to Avoid (or Use with Care) Because They Are Loaded or Confusing. There are a number of words and phrases that we recommend avoiding, or avoiding in certain contexts and usages.
