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?

A hairstyle: the front is cut trim, but the back is left long and wild.

Can only be pulled off by people with the confidence to be anachronistic. It keeps the hair out of your eyes, but you can still head-bang and enjoy the freedom of long hair.

It's fucking awesome. I don't even care if you fags (see: sp) don't like it, or if you ignorantly associate it with "rednecks," because I'm gonna wear my hair the way I want to.
Mr. Turner from Boy Meets World had a mullet. He was a cool guy.

Haircut traditionally associated with American whitetrash, wrestlers, middle of the road american cockrock bands, and in general the eras of the late 70's through to the 80's.

However the mullet is currently making a resurgence in metrosexual males from the Welsh valleys.
Often associated with scarily clone-like steroid using, fake tan covered, pink t-shirt wearing posers who love themselves and spend far more time in the gym and hairdressers than any straight male ever should.
Affectionately known locally as "Spice Boys" - known more generally as "twats"
Apparently they are unaware that the mullet has not been considered cool (outside of Arkansas that is) for over 20 years
"check out the mullets on those spice boys over there - its like they're in fucking uniform man!"

"spice boys? - is that what you call them round here? - back home we just call them Twats and be done with it"
