This article is about the physical items released with the single. For the song itself, see Going Under (Song).

The Going Under single was commercially released in the UK on September 9, 2003, and to the rest of the world on September 15, 2003. The second single off Fallen, though it was originally intended to be the first. The decision to make Bring Me To Life the first single was made by the record label who felt that a female-fronted rock band wouldn't necessarily do well with the public. Going Under did fairly well, receiving heavy airplay during its era and certifying gold in a few countries.

The physical single features the cover photo by an anonymous photographer (no credits are given on any international release) who is assumed to be Frank Veronsky—the photographer of all promotional images for Fallen. The original photo appears on the majority of international singles. The yellowed photo on the DVD single and the Brazilian single has been adjusted in photoshop but is the same original picture. The background artwork usually features a blue stylized motif except for, again, the Brazilian single which has completely different artwork including a video still.

The only oddity amongst international releases is the Spanish CD Single where the tracklisting has substituted the standard Live Acoustic performance of the title track with a performance recorded in Spain. The two are almost unnoticeably different from each other.
