Very true, there are a grand amount of songs like that in Everclear's ...uh...aresenal? Anyway, however, it seems to me that they are starting to move beyond that, and some good songs that aren't about those things you listed are Heartspark Dollarsign, New York Times, Brown Eyed Girl (Great Cover) etc, etc...
PS. If i wanted to be anal, I'd point out that there are no abusive father songs because there was no father present in the lead singer's life at all. But I won't do that, because that'd be stupid.
