Macaulay Culkin is a child star turned musician turned member of a cover band that only sings about … pizza? Yes. We can’t make this stuff up.

The “Home Alone” star is all grown up and, according to his band’s page on BandCamp, using his house to double as a recording studio.

The Pizza Underground – a band with Culkin contributing percussion, kazoo and vocals – is a Velvet Underground cover band who dedicates their lyrics to pepperoni, cheese and their love of ‘za with such covers as “Take a Bite of the Wild Slice,” and “Pizza Gal.”

The demo was recorded live in November “at Macaulay Culkin’s house,” according to the site.
