Too!: Mullets In Love. The collection contains 18 tracks in the theme of "a romance in shag heaven" and comprises a stellar A-list of mulleteers past & present including Ted Nugent, Ace Frehley, Boston, Foghat, Eddie Money, Jefferson Starship, Aldo Nova, Blue Oyster Cult, Joan Jett & The Blackhearts, J.

As if that's not enough, I've included the rest of the press release verbage below purely for its comical value:

Rising majestically, like a great feathery blow-dried phoenix from the ashes of double-wides and El Caminos coast-to-coast, is the most important rock movement of the 21st century. So cast off your seat belts, grab a 40 and some beef jerky from the WaWa store, dust off those Blue ?yster Cult and Ted Nugent 8-track cartridges, and let the cruisin' begin. The love song of the Mullet is in the air, with the Ides Of March and the first blush of springtime right around the corner.

The lesson of MULLETS ROCK! TOO!: MULLETS IN LOVE reads loud and clear: Mullets are human, too. If you prick us, do we not bleed? If you tickle us, do we not laugh? If you plays us Boston and Cheap Trick, do we not rock? This specially assembled 18-song bouquet - the closest that any raving mullethead will come to true romance this year - will arrive in record stores, convenience marts, participating car washes and lube centers March 6th on Legacy Recordings, a division of SONY BMG MUSIC ENTERTAINMENT.

MULLETS ROCK! TOO!, of course, is the long-awaited follow-up to 2003's 35-song, two-CD set Mullets Rock - a monster of a collection - if the inclusion of Edgar Winter Group's "Frankenstein" and Blue Oyster Cult's "Godzilla" were any indication. Mullets Rock took its cue from the enormous popularity of the Joe Dirt motion picture soundtrack album on Columbia/Legacy, a CD of ape drape faves that had the distinction of selling more copies than the number of those who attended the movie! The new album takes careful aim with cupid's dipstick, with a soul-satisfying sure-fire program of steamy pleasures, from Ace Frehley's 1989 remake of the Move's "Do Ya" to Nazareth's 1975 homage to the Everly Brothers' "Love Hurts.".

MULLETS ROCK! TOO! also proves that Mullet Nation is more than just a haircut behind a steering wheel, more than just the business in the front-party in the back epithet that it suffers in stony silence. Call us achy-breaky, beaver paddle, or Kentucky waterfall - when it comes to matters of the heart, every Mullet knows that the Nuge's "Wang Dang Sweet Poontang" is just another way to say I-love-you.

Like its predecessor, the new album gives max overhead-room to the cream cheese of American rockers, with Top 10 classics by Kansas ("Dust In The Wind"), REO Speedwagon ("Take It On The Run"), the J. Geils Band ("Love Stinks"), Night Ranger ("Sister Christian"), and many others. At the same time, MULLETS ROCK! TOO! tips its Tennessee tophat to the UK's Top of the Pops - Bonnie Tyler's #1 hit "Total Eclipse Of The Heart," and Foghat's sensitive reading of Chicago bluesman Willie Dixon's "I Just Want To Make Love To You" (produced by Dave Edmunds).

MULLETS! ROCK TOO! once again proudly hails every metropolis on the great North American rock tour - from San Francisco's Jefferson Starship ("Jane") to Staten Island's Eddie Money ("Baby Hold On"), from Montreal's Aldo Nova ("Fantasy") to Philadelphia coif-kings Cinderella ("Don't Know What You Got (Till It's Gone)"), from Florida's own Lynyrd Skynyrd ("Tuesday's Gone") to Long Island, New York's beloved Blue Oyster Cult ("Burnin' For You" - the only track on the new album that was also featured on the Joe Dirt CD).

"Love, love, love" sang those primitive mop-tops from Liverpool - long before soccer rockers on both sides of the pond would put Mulletude centerstage, and Joat Jett & The Blackhearts would sing "I Hate Myself For Loving You."

Let your freak flag fly, wear it loud and proud, Mullets of the world unite!
