The way I see it, things are different for the punk genre. It's hard to take a band seriously if it's whining about The Evils of Corporate America while it's receiving millions of dollars from Corporate America, let alone changing their sound for the label.

That's a point. On the other hand, does anyone really take punk seriously anymore? It was a big thing, but now? I don't know.

But the end is, again, I 'm not a punk, and don't give a damn about the whole sell-out gig. If someone wants more money, that's their choice, as long as they make something worth listening to. Says the guy who never actually listen to song texts...

The formula for figuring out if a band is "punk" is very simple.

Major label = not punk.  The two are completely 100% mutually exclusive.

Having performed any song or songs with the use of orchestral backing = not punk (the Ramones get a buy on this one because it was done at gun point, Phil Spector is a whack job...)

Other criteria can also be used to further whittle down your contendors but it's sort of like buying a Rolls Royce, if you have to ask... 

No other genre is shot through with posers more than punk which is sad since punk is more about pure attitude than any other genre, making punk posers some of the saddest losers on the planet. 

Punk was/is about the refusal to accept the mainstream, it's about doing it yourself regardless of lack of technical prowess.  It's about picking up a guitar with a fistful of rage and writing music despite how many people tell you that you can't.  It's not about huge record sales or tons of fans, it's about the experience.  Punks were the true outlaws of the music scene, seeing hack pukes like Green Day marketed as punk makes me sick to my fucking stomach.

I never got that sell-out thing. It's like "Oh my god, they play good music and have been recognized for it! HOW CAN THIS BE!?"
And "Oh my god, they're actually making a living of their music? THE CRIME!"

Yeah, I never got the sell-out thing... To me it's always been a question of whether they make something worth listening to or not. If yes, then  listen, if no, then they can go fuck themselves.

The way I see it, if a band plays a type of music, then changes said type to get more sales, they've sold out. As long as I like this new stuff, I don't particularly care though.

With me, Selling out is less changing your sound, more forgetting your original message. I'm sure that Green Day WANTED to be punk in the beginning, but when they started seeing those dollar signs, music took the back seat.

Sacrificing music for money is bad, I agree. But as long as they play as good, or better, while earning more money, I don't see the point in raging.

Selling out is basically... taking nothing but sponsors, and writing songs for the money, not the passion, also, all rise against does is complain.

So you can't be passionate about getting money? As I said, I don't really care, as long as what I listen to is... well, worth listening to. Besides, I rarely listen to texts, so what someone sings about doesn't matter.

And selling out has at least four definitions I can think of. They all vary the details, and vary between genres.
