Home Alone actor Macaulay Culkin's pizza themed Velvet Underground covers band have been 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. Scroll up to hear their song 'Pepperoni Eyes' now. 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!"

Last month (November) The Pizza Underground played the anti-folk open mic night at the Sidewalk Cafe in New York's using a pizza box as a percussion instrument. Earlier this week (December 12) footage of the gig was uploaded on YouTube. Scroll down to watch the New York gig now.
