    Why is music all to do with money, sex, girls, and status?

    I find it hard to listen to any music nowadays, cause all I hear is someone boasting about his money, cars, girls or a female artist singing about a breakup, a guy!! Where has all the good music gone?

    It depends on what kind of music you are listening to.  Bands like ColdPlay do not sing about only money, sex, girls, and status or break up.  There is still good music out there, it's just not as easy to find these days.

    The music you are referring to is geared toward a materialistic youth who are the #1 customers of the music industry! The young have yet to broaden their horizons and have begun to cling to old ideas in a vain attempt at self identification. That is the kind of music they listen to because that is where their mindset is.
    However, as far as the answer to where has all the good music gone? Honestly, if you don't like country music, (I do not), then you have to go north to go old Canada where Rock and Roll is still the number one form of music and those sort of musicians actually have a chance of being produced and managed properly.
    Or, like myself you would have to listen to underground music. There are several forms of underground music. Myself I listen to Slayer and a plethora of metal bands ranging from Fates warning to Dimmu Borgir and Cradle of Filth and Soulfly. Though these bands are not exactly underground I challenge you to tell me where in the USA I can listen to this stuff on the radio when it is daylight!
    Sadly, our country's youth are the biggest income source for the music industry and if there is limited exposure for other types of music than the socially accepted kind then the really unique and creative musicians in this country will continue to be forced to go to other countries to find success.
    Rock and Roll has not died. Its been shipped overseas!

    "When the higher hills have turned blue
    And the waves are lapping where the children grew
    All that we have known will be an echo
    Of days when love was true
    Muted voices just beyond
    The silent surface of what has gone"

    "Take Us Back" - Alela Diane

    This was the song I was listening to when I saw your question. I think there's lots of great music out there, you just have to turn off the Top 40 radio stations, who tend to play thin gruel designed to be easily digestable by the masses.
