In late 2013, erstwhile child star Macaulay Culkin resurfaced as frontman of the pizza-themed Velvet Underground tribute band the Pizza Underground. The Pizzas released a\u00a0demo medley\u00a0featuring snippets of songs\u00a0like\u00a0"Papa John Says" and "I'm Beginning to Eat the Slice," 50-year-old\u00a0melodies\u00a0repurposed in service of\u00a0a unifying theme so cheesy it\u00a0accidentally managed to tap into\u00a0the na\u00efvety of the originals.\u00a0The band\u00a0even went on tour\u00a0in 2014, but we haven't heard much since. So it should come as no great surprise that, on today's episode of\u00a0WTF with Marc Maron,\u00a0Culkin acknowledged that\u00a0the Pizza Underground\u00a0are effectively over. The\u00a0original idea was "a lark that we did,"\u00a0Culkin told\u00a0Maron. "We were a joke parody band.\u00a0I didn't want people walking\u00a0away going, 'That was a good\u00a0show.' I wanted people walking away going, 'I had a lot of fun.'" The project came to an end, he\u00a0explained, because\u00a0\u201cI was a little tired of it, to be completely honest. ... I'm very casual about everything I pursue.\u201d Elsewhere in the interview, the 37-year-old Culkin described himself as "a 30-something retired person" who spends\u00a0his time writing and\u00a0painting. "Everything I do is a hobby now," he said. As Pitchfork points out, the Pizza Underground supposedly did\u00a0record a real album at some point. That project\u00a0was never released, and if it exists, Culkin didn't mention it. He did offer a pretty self-aware summation of the Pizza Underground's appeal:\u00a0"It's one of those things where it's a joke and you laugh, and then we keep on repeating the same joke so it gets un-funny, and then it comes back around again and it becomes hysterical." Macaulay Culkin's\u00a0surprisingly good but unsurprisingly forgotten parody band with no formal releases is officially on the permanent hiatus anyone who did remember it\u00a0would have assumed it's on... is this news? Is This News?\u00a0is a series of stories that might be news.
