Over the years The Underworld has become the heart of the alternative music scene in England. Little is promoted about the history of the venue, although it dates back to the opening of pub above The Worlds End. The venue is itself owned by Glendola Leisure.
In 2007, influential Canadian musician Devin Townsend chose to tell the press of his departure from touring, and the break up of his bands Strapping Young Lad and The Devin Townsend Band during a press conference for his album Ziltoid The Omniscient at the Camden Underworld.
The Underworld has played host to concerts by such big name artists as Alabama 3, At The Drive-In, Black Rebel Motorcycle Club, The Cranberries, Crazytown, The Datsuns, Frank Black, Hole, Kristin Hersh, J Mascis, The Offspring, Placebo, Queens Of The Stone Age, Radiohead, Reef, Sepultura, Sheryl Crow, Silverchair, Slash’s Snakepit, Smashing Pumpkins, Foo Fighters, Soundgarden, KT Tunstall, Suede, The Darkness, The Von Bondies, Sum 41 and Fall Out Boy.
