Do you think the concept of the underground even means anything today? 

No, it means nothing. An approach, how you choose to do things can be underground, but then “independent” makes more sense. Do-it-yourself also means a lot of things today, but underground is just an aesthetic. If one track is listened to by 10 people, it doesn't mean it's underground. Or you hear a track and think it sounds underground, but you go on YouTube and it has 1 million views. Like, what the fuck? What's the meaning of underground? Is it something that the mass media don't talk about? It doesn’t make sense.
