Scoop: Macaulay Culkin band plays odes to pizza

Ryan Born/FilmMagicMacaulay Culkin during Macaulay Culkin Signs his Book Junior at Barnes & Noble in New York City - March 13

Macaulay Culkin has a new band, and boy is it, um, unique. Calling themselves The Pizza Underground, he and his mates play odes to pizza in the style of the Velvet Underground. “I’m Beginning To Eat The Slice,” “Cheese Days,” and “Papa John Says” are just some of their spaced-out 1960s-era ditties, A.V. Club reports.

The group has played in public once and have recorded a demo. Now all they need to do is book a national tour of Pizza Huts.
