      As for Metallica, many people point to when they went from metal to grunge as a sellout, but truth is, most of those people probably only knew of them because they commercialized for Justice For All.

        And they commercialized for Master of Puppets before that... and probably Kill Em All and Lightning before that.

      Were they commercialized at that point? It looks like And Justice For All won their first Grammy. They had critical acclaim before that.


Not much, but I would consider simply getting a record contract to be commercialization. That's the initial "sellout" for every popular band.
