Probably one of the only things in punk that's lasted as long and remained as perennially as popular as NOFX is the mohawk. And while it's obvioiusly no where near as radical as it was in the Reagan era, it's still an eye-grabbing representation of the counter-culture that once was.

Some were merely semi-committed with weekend mini-mounds, some were eerily Travis Bickle like and others still were sporting full-on liberty spikes. Keep reading to see our picks for the ten best mohawks of the night.
And while this fella clearly doesn't have a mohawk, his doo gets an honorable mention, as we presume it requires at least as much hair glue to fix it and keep it in place.
