Well somehow when we needed to team up in groups or pairs in school. There was Always a couple who called themself the dreamteam. Me and a friend saw some article in some magazine about some crazy army dudes fighting in the snow, a snow batallion. So whenever we teamed up, we were the snow battalion.
When going out, on the scooter, in the fucking winter to get weed, it would be snow batallion on tour. etc etc. We even ripped mp3's back in the day, and made it look like a scene release by tagging it with -SB0 (Snow Batalli0n) etc etc So that name still lives on.
but ofcourse on the interwebz we needed induvidial nicks, so my friend came up with Commander, or something like that. And since at that age everything sucked and we figured when in war you die first as cannon fodder, or on the frontline...Frontliner it became.
But then after hanging around on various boards using Frontliner, there was some Hardtyle DJ, who was on the point of breaking through, and he leaked his own tracks he just signed to a major label at the time, needed a new artist name. And the shithead took Frontliner. And well since he is more famous then i will ever be, and i hate it when people think i got it from him. I made it shorter and went with Fr0nt after that.
