So I'm doing a assignment for my graphical design class, and this assignment involves musical artists.
And due to the market that I'm appealing to combined with the message of the thing I'm designing I need a band that fits certain criteria.

1. Is part of internet-culture / gamer-culture or is popular with said groups.
2. Is anti-establishment (i.e. against the 1% and for the people/appeals to the "anonymous" type of people).
3. Is pro-human rights/humanist/egalitarian.
4. Preferably liberal/socialistic.

I already know of Machinae Supremacy, but I need one more.
Genre doesn't matter.

How are we determining internet/gaming popularity?

Gonna recommend KMFDM for now. They've written videogame soundtracks and have a lot of left-leaning protest songs:

Well in the case of Machinae Supremacy, I determined it based on both their lyrics -- with topics like gaming, net neutrality and positive portrayal of anonymous -- occational bouts of l337-speak, and also them being invited to play at gaming/LAN-events such as The Gathering and Assembly.

And then you have artists like Ken Ashcorp, who have a history as part of being a prominent figure in the 4-chan/encyclopedia dramatica culture and who make songs that are homages to internet artists or animated tv-shows like Gravity Falls.

Nine Inch Nails seems like a pretty obvious choice.
Maybe Atari Teenage Riot or some other digital hardcore groups, too.

Maybe Dayglo Abortions would work. They are a couple of generations behind this one, though so most of their "gamer" songs relate to tabletop games like Call of Cthulhu. Also, their songs seem more about sex than politics, but give it a go.
