The infamous mullet has gone through many changes throughout the years. It started in the ’70s, with Paul McCartney being among the first to popularize the ‘do. Then came the ’80s and the group of artists who embraced the cut included Billy Ray Cyrus and David Bowie.
Here are some of the greatest mullets in music
Aren’t we glad mullets aren’t making a comeback anytime soon. Here is country singer Billy Ray Cyrus as he attends the induction of his very own wax figure back in 1993 at the Movieland Wax Museum. It was during these years where it became popular to ”perm” the ”tail” of the mullet to add volume. Moving on…
This would have been a pretty good shot if only we could paste someone else’s ‘do on top (any suggestions?) The man of the night is Michael Bolton back in 1993 at the Grammy Awards.
Remember David Bowie some 30-something odd years ago? Here, he is performing as his flamboyant alter ego Ziggy Stardust back in 1973
Much has changed since the 1980′s. Thankfully, Bono is no longer sporting this mullet seen here, in a photo taken in Toronto thirty years ago.
Looking for ideas on how to give a really bad hair cut? Here are five. English pop group Duran Duran is seen here in this 1984 photo with (interesting?) pop art pieces. Clockwise from top left: bassist John Taylor, drummer Roger Taylor, singer Simon Le Bon, keyboard player Nick Rhodes and guitarist Andy Taylor.
James Hetfield of Metallica looks like he’s sweating up a storm while performing under this mountain of hair. Here he is in Orange City, CA back in 1994.
As if the mullet itself wasn’t bad enough. This outfit makes Little Richard look like he’s been caught out in a snowstorm. Oh, and this was taken just last year.
