The style was popular in the 70s and 80s because it would easily hide small issues such as dents or otherwise so the builder could avoid needing it to be perfectly smooth. It also worked as another layer to muffle sound. However, in modern homes there are much more enticing ways to address these issues which is why it’s no longer utilized.
