Let's be honest, there was a lot of hairspray sold in the 80's and early 90's. The volume was such that there is probably little doubt that serious damage was being done to the environment. Right now, however, we are going to highlight the mullet (A.K.A the Kentucky Waterfall, the Mississippi Mudflap, or the Canadian Passport.) I will list out the top ten of the two best decades of the Mullet Renaissance. There are rules, however:
No Hockey Players. Professionals aren't allowed in these Olympics.
The mullet must be a trademark image and not just a one time movie role thing.
Boys only. I will hand out the Aquanet Awards to the girls at a later date.
John Stamos is disqualified, because he knows what he did.
Also, no Billy Ray Cyrus, because. . .Miley. Once that gets resolved, he can rejoin the list.
And here we go:
10. Slater- Not sure if Mario Lopez rocked the mullet in his free time, but Slater from "Saved by the Bell" would never be seen without one. It projected his non-preppy image like a fist to the face. In retrospect however, Slater's mullet is a bit disappointing considering the competition that he is stacked up against, so he barely makes the cut.
9. Richard Marx- His music career peaked right at the nexis of the 80's and 90's and although he never really hit big, he did enough to move into the number 9 slot. He receives bonus points for style. Notice that he obviously has naturally curly hair so there had to be some sort of flat iron application to straighten his "party in the back." That is the type of dedication to the craft I look for in these awards.
8. Bono- I went to the tape and confirmed that Bono did indeed wear a mullet for a large period of time in the 80's. Stylistically, I approve of the wide clearance over the ear as well as the subtle Flock of Seagulls comb up in the front. Well done, Mr. Bono, well done.
Stay Happy! Stay Informed!
