Animal Collective have had a pizza named after them.

The band's tribute slice is served by Two Boots, a hip Stateside pizza chain, who already make a pizza named after Slayer as well as pizzas that pay titular homage to Dr. John and jazzman Charlie Parker. The Animal Collective pizza is topped with tasso ham, chicken, smoked andouille sausage meatballs and pepperoni and it comes on a Sicilian crust, reports Flavorwire.

In other pizza related music news, Home Alone actor Macaulay Culkin's pizza themed Velvet Underground covers band were recently threatened with violence by a rival pizza-based band. The band, who are called The Pizza Underground and boast songs such as 'I'm Waiting for Delivery Man', 'Cheese Days', 'I'm Beginning to Eat the Slice', 'All The Pizza Parties' and 'Take A Bite of the Wild Slice', in their repertoire, have provoked the ire of Personal & The Pizzas, who are also based in New York.

Personal & The Pizzas formed in 2010 and released the 'Raw Pie' cassette on Burger Records in the same year. Speaking to eMusic, frontman Personal claimed he was set to "kill" The Pizza Underground before suing them for stealing his niche. "First we're gonna kill em. Then! we're gonna sue 'em," said Personal. "Don't mess with the fuckin’ Pizzas, prick. I can reed motherfucker. I can reed!"
