I want to be rich and I want lots of money
I don’t care about clever I don’t care about funny
I want loads of clothes and f### loads of diamonds
I heard people die while they are trying to find them

I agree with the OP though, a lot of today's music I find revolting. These people are loaded with the world at their feet yet all they sing about is whinging and backstabbing and how depressed they are, and their bitches.
Gimme some Tool, Rush, Marley, Plant, Rammstein, and Elgar's Cello concerto to get my blood going. They're all genuine artists. And you can throw some Muse in there too.
