U2's "Unforgettable Fire Collection" Video: A Celebration of the Mullet

Yes, being of classic, mid-80s vintage, this VHS collection truly reminds us how important a role the "mullet" plays in the history of U2, and NOT just Bono.

But we shall start with him:

The "Bad" video performance is the most relevant example. At times, it appears you could switch Bono with "Dirty Dancing" era Patrick Swayze and never know the difference. The Bono mullet makes Travis Tritt look modest.

Then in the same video we have Adam Clayton. At other times in "The Unforgettable Fire Collection" he resembles Roy Dupuis of the USA Network's "La Femme Nikita," but in the "Bad" video, he sports a Jerry Seinfeld-style "subtle mullet." Yep, that's a mullet; might as well not try to deny it.

Then there is the crew member who keeps bouncing around the stage with the classic 80s headbanger (but not permed) mullet, similar to a "Wayne's World" work of art.

Even Brian Eno is unable to escape mullet mania; his falls somewhere between those of Phil Collins and Judas Priest's Rob Halford, the "thin on top but long-and-flowy in back" mid-life crisis mullet.

Edge barely escapes the Seinfeld subtle mullet on the "Bad" video; instead, he looks like Seinfeld after people informed him that he had a mullet and had it removed.

A great video collection though.
