What's the one thing that most people remember about the 80's? My guess would be the Mullet. It took the U.S. by storm, lasted about 5 years or so, and now is about as popular has the Hitler mustache ... that is, of course, unless you are a huge hockey fan ... or a country music buff (sounds to me like the mullet either never died here, or never fully went away ... like an annoying cock-roach colony).
I sported a mullet of sorts in the late 1980's ... Sadly (or not), I was never able to don a full mullet, because my hair was far too curly - not a good thing when it comes to mullet-sporting.
The classic tag-line of the mullet was "Business in the front, party in the back." It went well with acid-washed jeans and sneakers without shoelaces.
