to me selling out is actively changing what you do to try and please the lowest common denominator, in order to then make more profit.
But rob, using your art to advertise for products is the very definition of selling out. Art is art, not advertising. When you sell your song to advertising its no longer art, its a fucking corporate jingle yo.. its beyond just the $, you're nit promoting your art, you're promoting some bullshit corporate agenda.
