Macaulay Culkin has taken his pizza-loving ‘Home Alone’ days to a whole other level: He is now in the Pizza Underground, a tribute band that covers Velvet Underground songs, only with pizza-themed lyrics. Yes, you read that right.

The Pizza Underground, which uses the Twitter handle @cheesedayz, is comprised of Culkin (kazoo/percussion/vocals), Matt Colbourn (guitar/vocals), Phoebe Kreutz (glockenspiel/vocals), Deenah Vollmer (pizza box/vocals) and Austin Kilham (tambourine/vocals).

Sample lyrics include: “Papa John says, when answering the phone/Which topping should I take off?/Please deliver now,” and “I’m waitin’ for the delivery man, $46 dollars in my hand/Comes from Dominos, 1, 2, 3/More than 30 minutes, and that pizza is free.” And an extra special bonus: The track, which is a medley of Velvet Underground tunes with that pizza twist, was recorded live at Macaulay Culkin’s house.

Whether you think the Pizza Underground is genius or some strange invention someone thought up while they were high, we’re still holding out hope for a tune that somehow incorporates the phrase, “Keep the change, ya filthy animal.”
