    Tenacious D! They sang a song about nothing, well it was a tribute really but to a song by a band that to this day no one knows who it was.

    Just that the song they were singing as a tribute sounded nothing like the song it was dedicated to!

    Even Dave grohl got on bored for that song because he knew it was genius!

    I'm guessing you mean songs outside of those genres?

    Here's some pop songs that aren't about those things:

    Lonely - Justin Bieber

    Be As You Are - Mike Posner

    Sick Boy - The Chainsmokers

    Panic Room - Au/RA

    Hall of Fame - The Script

    Radioactive - Imagine Dragons

    Immortals - Fall Out Boy

    Working for the Weekend - MAX

    Love Song - Sara Baralleis

    100 years - Five For Fighting

    Paradise - Coldplay

    Counting Stars - One Republic

    Don't Forget Where You Belong - One Direction

    and so many more

    Yes, though you may to have to look outside the "pop" genre for some; a lot more heavy rock than pop type tracks tell stories rather than being love songs or whatever.

    A few classic examples that come to mind, trying to stick mainly to pop:

    Green Day - boulevard of broken dreams

    Dire Straits - Sultans of Swing

    Dire Straits - Money For Nothing

    Dire Straits - Telegraph Road

    Deep Purple - Smoke On The Water.

    Free - Wishing Well

    Al Stewart - Time Passages

    Duran Duran - The Reflex

    Eric Clapton - I Shot The Sheriff

    Men At Work - Overkill

    Seal - Crazy

    New Order - True Faith

    Stranglers - Golden Brown

    Bad Company - Rock n Roll Fantasy

    Bad Company - Bad Company

    ZZ Top / Elvis Presley - Viva Las Vegas

    Plus of course every instrumental track that's ever sold - The Shadows, Booker T, Darude, Candy Dulfer, Harold Faltermeyer and many others, plus lots of individual tracks; Albatross, Telstar, Frankenstein..

    And countless other tracks from such as Deep Purple, Rainbow, Black Sabbath, Iron Maiden, AC/DC and other heavy rock / metal bands.

    That seems to be the big thing here friend sex drugs rock and roll you take away these three things and you don't have much of music left!

    Yes, it is possible to sell music without speaking of any of those things.

    I'm a little confused about what you're asking. Do you want topics other than those for songs or specific songs with topics other than those?

    An example of a topic would be friendship. Song examples include Bros by Wolf Alice, Bad Blood by Bastille, Guys by The 1975, Fake Friends by Joan Jett, Army by Ellie Goulding, and Becky by Be Your Own Pet.

    I like how you lump "love" in with "sex, drugs, and alcohol." LMAO-- "One of these things is not like the others. Can you guess which one?"
