Did you know that Macaulay Culkin is in a cover band that replaces classic Velvet Underground lyrics with pizza-themed lyrics? Well you do now. And according to Variety, the band was booed off the stage at the Dot to Dot festival in Nottingham, England over the weekend. The band—appropriately called The Pizza Underground—was only on stage for 15 minutes before being viciously booed and pelted with pints of beer.
When hit with the beer, Culkin yelled, “Why are you throwing those? I’d rather drink them.”
In the band, Culkin provides the vocals and plays kazoo on songs like “It’s a Pizza Day,” which is a parody of Lou Reed’s “It’s a Perfect Day.” Apparently the free pizza the band handed out wasn’t enough to calm the hateful masses that didn’t enjoy Culkin's hand-spun take on the classics.
After the show, the band responded to the crowd with this tweet:
Thank you so much Nottingham and dot to dot. Sorry that a couple people ruined it for everyone.— pizza underground (@cheesedayz) May 25, 2014
