Dark Angel

There is Dark Angel the thrash band, and Dark Angel the TV show.

article on the band:

Dark Angel are a thrash metal band from Los Angeles. Their over-the-top style earned them the nickname "the L.A. Caffeine Machine" and the motto "too fast, my ass". They released a demo album, We Have Arrived, in 1985, and a proper debut, Darkness Descends, in 1986. This LP is a seminal release in the history of metal, joining Reign in Blood (Slayer) and Pleasure to Kill (Kreator) as highly important thrash releases of 1986.

Two more LPs followed: Leave Scars (1988) and Time Does not Heal (1990), after which the band broke up. They have reformed recently (2002).

article on the TV show:

As a kid she escapes, with others like her, from a secret government institution called Manticore where the kids were "made" and trained to be soldiers. Soon after her escape, a terrorist strike with an electromagnetic pulse weapon destroys all computers and communication in the US, throwing the country into chaos.
