"Sellout" as written by and Juliana Hatfield....
Sellout
I wasn't born into royalty
But I can try to buy in
I live in the land of opportunity
And stealing, cheating, and lying
And I need you to want me
I lost my attitude
I got a tattoo

I show some tit,
And let you pinch my ass
I'll cut you some slack
So why don't you want me
Why don't you want me
It's not a sellout if nobody buys it
I can't be blamed if nobody likes it
Should I keep smiling
Or should I start crying

I know that you love me
'Cause you said you did
You said that I was the real thing
Hey, where are you going
I thought that you told me
That if I learned how to play the game
Then I would win

If I learned how to say alright to everything
So why don't they want me
Why don't they want me
It's not a sellout if nobody buys it
I can't be blamed if nobody likes it
Can I redeem myself
Can I get back my name
I cannot show my face

In any decent place
I was only trying to make it
And now I cannot fake it anymore
Natives have Billboard
Take me for free I'm yours
La, la, la, la, la, whoo !

It's not a sellout if nobody buys it
I can't be blamed if nobody likes it
It's not a sellout if nobody buys it
I can't be blamed if nobody likes it
It's not a sellout if nobody buys it
I can't be blamed if nobody likes it
It's not a sellout
I can't be blamed

    General CommentThis is obviously about her bad experience with her former major record label, Atlantic perhaps?
