A song by the rock group The Who about the facade one erects, or the pose one assumes, whether from pride, arrogance, insecurity or some other motive, in order to conceal his or her identity or essential self. The song lists various happenings, the pursuit or occurrence of which causes us to forget that we conceal ourselves as such.
Eminence fronters: Name-droppers, power trippers, title proclaimers, bling wearers, etc.

The title of a song by The Who. It describes the hedonistic lifestyle of the 80's. Hedonism is the philosophy that pleasure is the most important pursuit of mankind.
"this song is about what happens when you take too much white powder. It's called 'Eminence Front'."

-Pete Townshend

A position of superiority, and/or leadership. In "Eminence Front" By The Who. They sing about it.

One of The Who's greatest songs. Up there with Who Are You, Baba O'Riley, Won't Get Fooled Again, Pinball Wizard and all the others.
Eminence Front is beyond amazing. Anyone who likes The Who needs to have it in their collection.
