It's commonly abused in conjunction with an arpeggiator by the musically uneducated.
Me: It's not just the same three chords arpeggiated over and over in the sequencer in 4/4 time is it? Please don't tell me the rhythm is just a bass drum playing pure quarter notes!
Unlcean fool: ...huh? maybe... :(
"Heh, I know the sequencer who made that."
