I was just going to mention that one. Also OP have a look at parody songs such as "Weird Al" Yankovic's parodies. A lot of them aren't about love.

Here's some more:

Ke$ha - We R Who We R, Blow
David Guetta ft Kid Cudi - Memories (I don't think this song's about love, I just had a look at the lyrics)
Kaiser Chiefs - I Predict A Riot
Take That - Kidz
Michael Jackson - Man In The Mirror, Earth Song, They Don't Really Care About Us
All-American Rejects - Real World, Gives You Hell
Christina Aguilera - Little Dreamer
Madonna - I Love New York, Vogue, Music, American Life
Heidi Montag - Superficial
Paradiso Girls - Patron Tequila
Girlicious - 2 In The Morning, Like Me (I think it's about a person imitating someone else)

The Police - Every Breath You Take
That's about a disturbed stalker who thinks he's in
love with the woman in the song, though folk usually
misinterprete it as a love song.

sparks [if anybody knows of them] have 100's of songs and only 2/3 of them are about love. which is quite unusual!
Great band. Listen to tracks like 'Tsui Hark', 'In The Future' and 'Roger' for the 1/3...

Also

Most songs by The Prodigy, some Chemical Brothers

Kraftwerk - songs about robots, radio-waves and railways. I'm not sure they did 'love', unless it involved a computer.

Also here's a thread I set up ages ago. It's about songs about money: http://forums.digitalspy.co.uk/showthread.php?t=1248096

I think a more interesting thread would have been songs not about love or sex

Kate Bush- Heads We're Dancing, which is about how she dances with a man one night and the next day she realises that man was Hitler.

As someone has already said Ms Bush has a plethora of non-love orientated songs.

Hahah Here are some other non-love songs I thought of:

Queen - Don't Stop Me Now, We Are The Champions, We Will Rock You

Come to think of it, there's actually a lot out there! Just have to find them.
