When are people going to realize that catharsis makes great music? This certainly includes Radiohead and Coldplay. Quite simply, not everyone in the world is as happy-go-lucky as you people, it would seem. Plus, evaluating music based solely on the general attitude of the people that write it implies that you’re probably overlooking many of the redeeming qualities of a particular song, album, or artist. If you want to avoid “whining” altogether, your best bets are Christian Rock or metal that equates volume for actual musical quality.
