The Southside Rag was an alternative newspaper published in Birmingham in 1970. The Southside Rag Co. kept offices at 1408 9th Avenue South (now absorbed into the UAB Campus Green.)

The first issue was distributed during a free concert at Avondale Park on July 19, 1970. According to a letter published in The Great Speckled Bird, "several really heavy things [depended] on the success of The Rag," including "the fate of a drug rehabilitation commune and... the success of several new freak-operated community shops selling locally produced stuff."
