I think you have to make a distinction between progression and selling out....by some of these standards some would probably include the Beatles and use Abbey Road as an example of them selling out as opposed to the early years.

I never cared for them so they didn't make my cut.

You really think Pink Floyd sold out with Dark Side of the Moon? In what way? I guess I may not understand what constitutes selling out, but I find Pink Floyd's discography to represent progression, not selling out.

The only thing Metallica has sold out is arenas and music festivals.

This is what happened to Metallica (and apparently The Offspring): Bob Rock - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

As reluctant as I am to quote Wikipedia: "A petition that some 1,500 fans signed was posted online.

He was also quoted saying "Sometimes, even with a great coach, a team keeps losing. You have to get new blood in there.
After Gwen Stefani (and now Pete Townsend and Roger Daltry), I consider Metallica the standard bearers for the term "sellout".

They didn't sell out. They bought in.

Biggest Musical Sellouts of All Time
First two records were cutting edge new wave British heavy metal (On through the night, High n dry) . Then Pyromania. Curse you Mutt Lange.
