music - i get so damn sick of songs about love

I listen to a lot of 80's tunes, drum and bass, and everything else from 1940 to now if I like it.  But oh my god.....lately listening to music from1980-now, it seems like every single song can be put into a couple of catagories:
I hate my ex and I'm bitching about him / her
I'm happy because I'm in love
I'm sad / lonely because we just broke up

RRRRR!! They can seriously stuff a god damn sock in it! I'm not completely sure, but I can swear that the lonely, sad, and angry songs seem way more dominant today than say from 1940-1980. Yeah there's the occasional "you cheated on me and I think you're a (fill in the blank)"  type of song, but it just seems like people were more idealistic back then or more hopeful. But to me sometimes it's like music is just a big garbage dump where some singer gets up there just to dump their crap and anger and junk onto their audience or imaginary whoever they're singing to. I really wish I could find more music where they actually try to do some good. Such as making people think about different ways of living or seeing the world or themselves. That's progress right?

I don't know if you're into metal but there have been many metal songs written that have dealt with subjects outside of the ones you mentioned above. I'll link you to a few:

Megadeth - Sweating Bullets https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aOnKCcjP8Qs
(With this song Dave Mustaine is dealing with the topic of the inner self, the video reflects that)

Megadeath - Peace Sells https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rdEupVsL07E
(with this song they're dealing with social and political topics)

Helloween - I Want Out https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FjV8SHjHvHk
(this song deals with how the world boxes us in and pushes us into a form they want us to be)

Helloween - A Little Time https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=l_bJVVpSi7k
(this song is about how we have a little time on earth to fill our lives, this song doesn't come off as a downer though)

Lost Horizon - Sworn in the Metal Wind https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FcZAj1MPpeo
(song paints a picture of one metalhead feeling down and out and another metalhead encouraging him and showing tough love towards the end of the song)

Kansas - Carry on my wayward son https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pw6_VXPwm6U
(here's a classic rocker from the 70's that's uplifting)

Survivor - Eye of the Tiger https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rwer1CiteBg
(remember this uplifting rocker from one of the Rocky movies?)

Solitude Aeturnus - The 9th Day Awakening https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=q60LN6VdTpQ
(here's a song from one of the best Doom Metal bands on the planet. the song paints a picture of a guy that's been depressed for 8 days and is now rising out of it on the 9th day, that's what I get out of it anyway)

My solution for music that seems repetitive: I start listening to music from different genres. Most of my music is oldies though (late 50's to early 90's)
I made the philosophy that every genre will have SOMETHING that I'll like. I just need to find it. I even go so far to go in for other languages. XD I found some pretty awesome stuff. ^w^
I wish you luck in your search for awesome musics. :D

That's what sells, sadly. May I recommend Frozen Synapse's soundtrack or Pendulum?
