It being related to music is the only correct part of the last definition. A level reached by few, overground is when an underground artist becomes so popular that they can no longer be called underground. I would say that any underground artist who sells 1 mill+ copies of any one of their albums can be considered overground.
Tech N9ne, Tecca Nina, and Aaron Yates are the only overground artists that come to mind. . . they are all the same person if you didn't catch that.

A celebrity free pass is an agreement between you and your significant other that if you meet said celebrity and there is an opportunity to sleep with them, your partner cannot get mad at you for doing so because you had agreed before hand that this person was your celebrity free pass. It is ideal if both of you in the relationship choose a celebrity free pass so that the playing field is even.
Julia met Drake at a bar, and hooked up with him, knowing that her significant other could not be mad at her, because Drake was her celebrity free pass.

The opposite of underground.

More oftenly referred to as mainstream or commercial.

Used to describe music (usually rap/hip hop) that is played on the radio just to sell records, as opposed to being quality music.

Above the earth

Often instead of saying 'overground music' it is simplified to just 'overground' or 'the overground'.
