Macaulay Culkin's Pizza Underground Gets Booed Off Stage

(Radio.com) Some people take the Velvet Underground seriously. Very seriously. In fact, way too seriously to be able to deal with a tribute band that changes all the song's subjects (such as drugs, drug addicts and bondage) to pizza.

Macaulay Culkin learned that the hard way at a festival in England over the weekend (May 25). His group, the Pizza Underground, lasted barely 15 minutes into their set at the Dot To Dot Festival before the jeering crowd inspired Culkin to storm off stage, saying, "That's the end of the show. Goodnight," according to The Nottingham Post.

After the show, the band tweeted, "Thank you so much Nottingham and dot to dot. Sorry that a couple people ruined it for everyone." A number of fans tweeted their support back at the band, with comments ranging from "I love youu guys! I thought you were brilliant! So embarrassed for Nottingham! :( #pizzaforever" and "dudes you was so awesome I was supporting all the way" to "they just don't understand how good pizza is" (the band give the audience pizza slices at their shows). more on this story
