Rock acts born of the '70s
The 1970s burgeoning punk and rock scenes were fertile for female mullets -- and for androgynous rock star mullets. Joan Jett (upper left) of the Runaways, Chrissie Hynde (upper right) of the Pretenders, and Patti Smith (lower left) all gave the mullet cool points. But don't discount the influence of David Bowie and his character in the 1973 documentary film "Ziggy Stardust and the Spiders From Mars."
