The terms underground press or clandestine press refer to periodicals and publications that are produced without official approval, illegally or against the wishes of a dominant (governmental / religious / institutional) group.

Underground comics (also known as underground comix or just comix) are small press or self-published comic books which are often socially relevant or satirical in nature. They differ from mainstream comics in depicting content forbidden to mainstream publications by the Comics Code Authority, including explicit drug use, sexuality and violence. Spanking comics are often underground comix, such as the works by Palcomix.

Underground art is a term that refers any form of art that operates outside of conventional norms in the art world. This can include essentially any genre of art that is not popular in the art world.
