M is for... Mullet

Today is letter 'M' day.. and a fine letter it is. And with it being a Saturday, what better way to celebrate the weekend than by introducing one of the funnest 'M-words" in the english language..

Mullet!

All business in the front.. but a party that never ends in the back.. mullets were, I'm almost ashamed to say, all the rage in my younger days.

When I was in High School, Hair Metal ruled the airwaves, and mullets were the crowns that sat atop those metal heads.

There weren't very many popular late 80's band that didn't feature the mullet somewhere in the band. It was nearly mandatory. From pop music to punk to heavy metal to even the fledgling rap groups of the day.. nobody was immune to the allure of the mullet.

Not even Hollywood escaped the pull of the buzzed sides meshed in an unholy union with those lengthy locks in the back.

The list of people who wore the infamous coif of the rocker includes such late 80's, early 90's celebrities as.....
Billy Ray Cyrus
Magyver
Chuck Norris

Michael Bolton













The mullet was so popular.. some people have yet to outgrow the style, choosing instead to wait until it returns to once again reign supreme over all hairdo's

..

You go.. Dog.

  2. Even scarier was the female version of the mullet that I had in the 80's for a year or so!!! That truly is a great M word though.
