* {{Music/Tool}}'s song "Hooker With A Penis" is about exactly this accusation. To quote from the chorus:
--> ''I sold out long before you ever heard my name''
--> ''I sold my soul to make a record, Dip shit''
--> ''And you bought one''

* Creator/PattonOswalt had a routine about becoming a sell-out on his album ''Tragedy Plus Comedy Equals Time''. Patton describes how he used to think that "selling out" was something you only ever had to decide once, but he changed his mind as he got further in his career. The turning point was when he was invited to perform at a casino for a "sacrilegious" amount of money, and he accepted, only for the crowd he was performing for to be so drunk that they just shouted Patton's career at him, without Patton getting the chance to tell a single joke. After the set, the casino offered him the chance to do it every weekend, so the temptation to become a "corporate whore" for them is always there.

* As depicted in the documentary ''Film/{{Dig!}}'', Anton Newcombe of Music/TheBrianJonestownMassacre was violently opposed to "selling out." The fact that his friend Courtney Taylor-Taylor's band Music/TheDandyWarhols achieved some measure of mainstream success drove a wedge between the two of them.

* In ''ScottPilgrim'', Ramona's second evil-ex, Lucas Lee, is a professional skateboarder turned actor and he is recurringly called a sell-out. This appears to be the main reason he's considered evil, but otherwise he seems nice. However, being called a sell-out is his BerserkButton.

* Wrestling/{{Kane}}, in something of a ShockingSwerve, sold out to the Authority because he thought ruining people's lives was ultimately best for business. (It makes as much sense as anything else he does except for the fact he was in an unresolved feud with Wrestling/TheWyattFamily and just cut it short to go pal with Wrestling/StephanieMcMahon)
