It was considerably less than a perfect day for Macaulay Culkin‘s pizza-themed Velvet Underground cover band, the Pizza Underground, when they took the stage over the weekend at the U.K.’s Dot to Dot Festival.

In fact, you might say crowds were beginning to see the light and reject the Pizza Underground‘s act as maybe a little too cheesy, or perhaps half-baked, even. (That’s a Velvet Underground reference and two pizza puns. You’re welcome.)

The group had finished just one song before the boos began, which escalated into pints of beer being lobbed at the band. “Why are you throwing those? I’d rather drink them,” Culkin responded, but he was unable to pacify the crowd, and the band left after just one more song.

The Nottingham Post quoted one fan as saying, “It just sounds awful. I can’t believe he is doing this. Why bother? It must go down well in America or something.”

The band later Tweeted their thanks to Nottingham, and the festival, adding that they were “Sorry that a couple people ruined it for everyone.”
