As the '70s turned to the '80s, the mullet started to evolve with a new generation of rockers. Van Halen were hotter than any band at the beginning of the decade, and their original bassist, Michael Anthony, just might own the mullet longevity record.

Anthony spent much of the '80s and '90s rocking a bit of a "rat's nest," with short curly locks up front and a shoulder-length perm in back. He's toned the differential between front and back down a bit, but still clearly is of two frames of minds when it comes to back and front hair lengths.
