You’ve admired them for years – and so have your favorite celebrities. See the mullet’s progression through the movie, music and sporting industries and its unlikely climb to the front of fashion.

Teen hunk Mario Lopez showed Bayside High who's boss with the 'jock mullet', making it a staple of the decade's fashion.
David Spade starred in the cult classic Joe Dirt, bringing the mullet much-needed attention in the new millenium. He may have said, "Life's a garden - dig it," but we dug his hair even more.
The Achy-Breaky Heartbreaker Billy Ray Cyrus brought the mullet to the country music scene. Not only did his hit single explode, the signature mullet received enormous amounts of praise. Even though Billy Ray does not currently have a mullet, his treasured tresses will live in infamy.

Any child born in the 1980s remembers Captain Planet, one of the few cartoon characters willing to save the world and 'mullet up' in the process.
