No matter how you slice it, it’s clear fans were less than impressed with Macaulay Culkin’s band, Pizza Underground, this weekend.
The former child star took the stage at the Dot to Dot festival in Nottingham, England over the weekend to perform a new cover, called “It’s a Pizza Day” (a pizza-fied rendition of Lou Reed’s “It’s a Perfect Day”).

Fans clearly weren’t receptive to his cover, as the crowd allegedly booed the Home Alone star and pelted cans on the stage, leaving Macaulay and his band mates covered in beer.
“Why are you throwing those? I’d rather drink them,” the 33-year-old reportedly yelled at the crowd.
While a pizza version of a classic medley may seem crass, it’s appropriate, as Macaulay and his pals recently created a comedic cover band—appropriately named The Pizza Underground—that exclusively performs songs that have been altered so all the lyrics are about pizza.

Their track listing includes “All the Pizza Parties” (originally Velvet Underground’s “All Tomorrow’s Parties”) and “Take a Bite of the Wild Slice” (Lou Reed’s “Walk on the Wild Side”).
How very cheesy!
