Pizzawave Feud Heating Up? Macaulay Culkin's Pie-Themed VU Cover Band Threatened By Rival Pizza Rockers

Last week Macaulay Culkin unveiled his post-Home Alone magnum opus, a pizza-themed Velvet Underground cover band called, of course, The Pizza Underground. Along with a slick Tumblr and some “we mean business” press shots, the PU released a dazzling nine-minute medley of pizza-fied versions of Velvet Underground classics like “Stephanie Says,” “I’m Waiting For The Man” and “All Tomorrow’s Parties.”

It was hailed as a masterpiece, it was decried as an abomination and now, pizza rockers Personal & The Pizzas have publicly called out Culkin and company for copping their style. eMusic recently reached out to the Burger Records group, who’ve been putting out the dough/cheese/sauce vibes since 2010, to get their opinion on the recent rise of the PU’s crust. They were none too impressed:

“Yeah……………..Here’s my fuggin’ review;

First we’re gonna kill em

THEN! we’re gonna sue em

DONT MESS WITH THE FUCKIN’ PIZZAS, PRICK.

I CAN REED MOTHERFUCKER
I CAN REED.”

How this battle for pizza rock supremacy will shake out remains to be seen, but the more important question might be if between these pizza-themed bands, Beyoncé stepping out in skin-tight pepperoni garb and the proliferation of trendy pie-and-topping Facebook cover photos and Twitter backgrounds, will 2014 be the year of #pizzawave? Only time will tell, but we certainly like the smell wafting out of pop culture’s oven.
