Business in the front, party in the back. Mullets started in the late 60s early 70s. By the eighties, everyone had them, absolutely everyone (who was white, blacks had jerry curls or high top fades.) Then it all came to an end when Kurt Cobain called Brett Michaels girly-looking. Billy Ray Cyrus had one, but that was like the drunk uncle at a 10 year old's birthday party. Now it's only worn by hockey and soccer players.
The term mullet was invented and 1st used in pop culture by the Beastie Boys. Who knew?

Any hairstyle whereupon the top is shorter than the back, and said person wearing this hairstyle still thinks that quiet riot, whitesnake, cinderella, and all the other myriad of metal bands kick major ass. Addendum to definition: People with said hairstyle usually carry with them lifetime memberships to local respective strip clubs, and believe very firmly that Pabst Blue Ribbon is STILL the beer of choice, along with Budweiser.

A popular 1980's hairstyle that working class people continued to wear into the 1990's and 2000's, the mullet makes the American middle class feel better about themselves by giving them something to look down on; though the average U.S. citizen has a negative net worth and lives in a fascist police state controlled by transnational corporations, he can take comfort in the fact that he at least has a trendy haircut like the people on the current TV shows, and not like the people on the old ones.

Any haircut that is short in the front, long in the back, and identified with certain regional and socio-economic norms. Usually worn by males, though not exclusively. In the USA, it is usually associated with lower education and/or income males, and often considered a sign of white trash, trailer trash or redneck status. However, in Canada, the mullet is simply known as the hockey haircut, and is a practical choice for those who play Canada's national sport because it allows the player to wear a helmet and keep his long hair.
