In a new interview with Wired, Atari Teenage Riot frontman Alec Empire explains the story of how he duped Sony into supporting the Anonymous movement–the same movement that has been blamed for taking down the company's PlayStation Network.

After suing Sony for using one of ATR's songs without their permission in the past, the company eventually came back to Empire seeking to use another of the band's songs, “Black Flags” in a new ad. The irony is that the song was dedicated to Bradley Manning and the Anonymous hackers (a quick look at the lyrics gives away quite the clue about what the song deals with).

After licensing the new song to Sony, Empire donated all of the money he received directly to–a legal defense network to help Anonymous members who are arrested–saying, “I did it only for my own amusement!”
