We're not discussing scripting languages. You don't use a garden tractor in a mine, however handy it might be in the back yard. A Skil saw is of little value when you're building a jetliner.
FORTRAN, COBOL, and (yes) FORTH are almost as old as LISP. Even in their modernesque forms they implement no concepts more recent than the '70s. You omitted assembly language.
