Home / Funny / Viral / The Surprisingly Long History Of The Mullet


Lance Geiger of The History Guy, in his distinctively forthright manner, has explained the existence of the famous “Business in the front, party in the back” hair style. He offered a hair-raising explanation regarding the long, even ancient history of the mullet and warns of the sad inevitability of historic mistakes repeating themselves to the day. "A July, 2022 edition of the newspaper The Mirror notes: “Mullet ‘Back in Fashion’ as 80s Haircut Soars in Popularity Among Men and Women.” That grim news has understandably left many of us recoiling in shock and wonder just how the human race could have forgotten the failures of its past, only to repeat them in the present.”

This somewhat unusual hair style has been with us for a very long time, and has still been pulled off by some people in the 21st century. “While some seem to think that the cut is quintessentially American, the trend is actually much broader in Canada where the cut is often called hockey hair.  Australia called it the lion’s mane before the Beastie Boys popularised the name mullet. …Nicknames include the North Carolina neck warmer, the SNL Crisis, the Tennessee Top Hat, the Kentucky waterfall, the Missouri Compromise, the back job, the lobster, the Achy Breaky big mistakey, ….the mud flap, the ape drape, the Camaro crash helmet, the schlong (a portmanteau of short and long), and the Beaver paddle.”
