TR808
TB303
Fender Rhodes
Hammond B3
Gibson Les Paul
Fender Precision

What do they all have in common?
They all totally fail to convincingly sound like the traditional instruments they were developed to replace.
They were all used to carve out new forms of music that might never have existed without them.
Whilst that is definitely true of the electric guitar, I think you may be over-reaching more than somewhat to suggest that any of the other things you listed were more than a convenient form factor that made them more popular than what had gone before. There was EDM before somebody thought to run a 303 through a distortion and a whole universe of better drum machines than an 808. Neither machine was popular in it's time, it was only later that people found a use for them.
NOVAkILL 4.0 : Dell G7 17 (Core i7, 8GB RAM, Win10), UR44C, Cubase, DUNE, Thorn, TRK-01, Equator, Hive, Substance, Arcsyn, Aparillo, Phase Plant, Pigments, Trueno, Analog Keys, MicroMonsta, Uno, Skulpt, Craft 2.

and largely because no one wanted them, so second hand shops were selling them dirt cheap.
then non musicians got their hands on them, and made it up as they went along.
ah the early post industrial squat raves :love:
