Underworld is the fifth studio album by Australian band Divinyls, released in 1996 by BMG Records. It was the band's first studio album release in five years and the final release with original lead singer Chrissy Amphlett. The lead single "I'm Jealous" had been successful when released in 1995, however this did not have an effect on the album as Underworld was supposed to be released in the 3rd quarter of 1995, but the album was delayed repeatedly due to production problems. Underworld debuted and peaked at number forty-seven on the ARIA Albums Chart and was their last charting album.
