Is it possible to sell music without speaking about love, sex, drugs and alcohol?

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.

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?"
