This term comes from English, literally "underworld" or "gangland". It stands for alternative lifestyles and their artistic expression, styles that turn against establishment, being an alternative culture. Metaphorically, "underground" is referred to anything that is under the surface, under superficiality of mass media and pop culture. What lies underneath and is hidden in the realm of shades.
