Where Did the Term ‘Mullet’ Come From?

So apparently the Beastie Boys coined, and definitely popularised the term ‘mullet’ when they released this rather kick-ass track in 1994.
A few people I’ve spoken to say they’re sure they had heard the term before 1994, but either way it further cements the legends that are the Beastie Boys into the history of awesomeness.  So let’s ‘cut the sides, don’t touch the back’ while we throw out hair around to this one.

Do you have any interesting stories about the history of phrases and terminology? Let us know in the comments.
