Default Drum Machines replacing you

how do you feel that more and more bands are opting to use a beat/drum machine instead of an actual drummer?
you turn on the radio and hear 90% of the bands using an electronic drum beat (no crashes, fills, only straight beat the whole way through)
also, whats up with these bands and the over-simplified back beats, and replacing it with techno-esque synthing? i mean, if you have 10 1/2 drummers in that one little machine then why cant they cant think of anything better than "4 on the floor"?
not intended to start a fight or anything, just curious what you guys think of it.
and no, drum machines aren't really replacing you.
