'Cut the Sides, Don't Touch the Back!' | Daily Drawing #256
A tribute to the greatest American hairstyle.
The hairstyle has been around forever in one form or another but legend has it the term 'mullet' was coined and popularized by the Beastie Boys in their song "Mullet Head" (Ill Communication):
You're coming off like you're Van Damme
You've got Kenny G, in your Trans Am
You've got names like Billy Ray
Now you sing 'Hip Hop Hooray'
Put your Oakley's, stone wash on
Watching MTV and you watch on
And #1 on the side and don't touch the back
And #6 on the top and don't cut it wack, Jack
Mullet head, don't touch the back
Cut the sides, don't touch the back
