In This Thread, we post the names of rock stars/bands who have sold out.

Kurt Cobain for changing the title of "Rape Me" to "Waif Me" so he could sell it in Walmart

Rage Against the Machine who say that big corporations are evil, yet they work for one.

I don't think Wal-Mart was upset about "Rape Me", I think they objected to the cover art which depicted Kurt's drawing of a fetus or something. Anyway, in their stores, that CD came with cardboard blocking the drawing, or the drawing removed entirely. Something like that. My memory is hazy.

I think the title change was so they could sell the disc in Malaysia, or Thailand. At first, Kurt wanted to rename it "Sexually Assault Me", but I guess the record company didn't appreciate the humor in that.

In the Goo Goo Dolls case, yes, they did sell out. But who really cares about them anyway?
