There's more to the connection between moustaches and music than the 70s, and with Mustachiness, you can see your favorite song displayed as a moustache:
How the Mustache-otron Works: For each song, the peak loudness per segment is pulled from the echonest audio analysis to create the wave form. The following factors determine the mustaches final look in a very scientifical fashion:
Curviness - Curves occur when high loudness deltas are detected
Thickness - Mean loudness
Divot - (aka gap in the middle) hotness of the song
Direction - Up = higher energy; Down = lower energy
Curl - Dancability * energy
Color - Energy of the song. Lower energy is darker
The moustache at the top of this post is "Stairway to Heaven", in case you were wondering.
Tax policy professor Dr. John Yeutter and the American Mustache Institute have proposed a "Stimulus To Allow Critical Hair Expenses", or the STACHE Act, to provide up to a $250.00 annual tax incentive for Mustached Americans. The reason? According to the proposal, "the social and environmental benefits to mustache growth and maintenance provide a service to the U.S. economy."
"Given the clear link between the growing and maintenance of mustaches and incremental income, it appears clear that mustache maintenance costs qualify for and should be considered as a deductible expense related to the production of income under Internal Revenue Code Section 212." - Dr. John Yeutter, Ph.D., CFP®, Associate Professor of Accounting and Tax Policy at Northeastern State University in Tahlequah, Oklahoma, in his White Paper "Mustached Americans And The Triple Bottom Line.

The moustache is on the rebound, now that Movember is here. We tend to celebrate celebrity and historical figures' moustaches and refer to the implied manliness of wearing an epic 'stache. But not all moustaches are benevolent.
"The mustache (moustache) is celebrated worldwide as a symbol of all things machismo. We know it wasn't just Wyatt Earp's Colt 45 Revolver that helped tame the West. Anyone unlucky enough to stare down that barrel knew the last thing they'd ever see was that well groomed, stash curled upward and pristinely trimmed just above the lip.
Yet as with all things awesome, some asshole has to come along and ruin it for everyone else. Here are a few history's most diabolical men who've used the power of the mustache for evil."

"There's something delightful and dangerous about sliding a thin blade of cold steel across your face. And although it has the potential for instilling a truly rapturous experience for a man, today the act has been relegated to something merely mundane, sterile, and more of a nuisance. Yes, this simple act of shaving.
The act of shaving has been desecrated even in terms of names. The "Bic" razor?! Who wants to live a short, quick, and plastic life? A commodity just like a bic ball point pen, shaving has become mass market, quick and disconnected from the essence of manhood."
