Thats a really odd way of seeing it. Coming from a really bad neighborhood, I can tell you that the worse someone is, the more upbeat and lively the music they listened to became.
Most of the homeless junkies listened to happy upbeat pop and Sublime, even if they couldnt understand the lyrics (im spanish). They just enjoyed the sound of the music.
From what I've seen, only people that dont actually have any ""real"" problems listen to overly sad music, or enjoy doing so.
Most punks and angry rap fans I've met over the years all came from upper-middle class families, they couldnt relate at all to the struggle of a lower class. The sailors and fishermen listened to happy tunes and old songs from their childhood.
I do think the music of the dystopian future will be something like future funk, or some sort of disco revival. Im not even kidding.
