Business in the front, party in the back. That was the anthem some of us dared to live by in the 80s, and what better way than by wearing the badge of your motto loud and proud, right there on the top of your head? We don’t think there is a better way.
Guns ‘n Roses and Mötely Crüe certainly knew how to woo the ladies– through a killer combo of their heartfelt power ballads and… what else? Yes, their ridiculously awesome mullets. (They weren’t called Hair Bands for nothin’!) The style originally hit the scene with Tom Jones sporting his ‘do in the late 60s, and David Bowie couldn’t resist its call in the 70s during his Ziggy Stardust phase, but the mullet really hit its high point in the greatest decade of all: The 80s.
Eventually ridiculed for its awesomeness (seriously, we can’t think of any reason why someone would make fun of such a style…), the mullet has fallen by the wayside. Rarely seen in the wild these days, it occasionally makes an appearance in its natural habitat: NASCAR races and Wrestlemania. Other than that, the over-the-top hairstyle is mostly a thing of the past, but, whether you rocked one or shunned one, there’s no denying that the mullet was outstandingly 80s.
We ♥ the Mullet.
