I'll say Professor Snape up there in the front. He's obviously holding some kind of important document.

Beardy guy, leather jacket.

Thinks: Hmm hope they stay absorbed in the menu all the way to the terminus, then they shall not notice I snook off five stops before.

Tricky one. I've already used my German techno and Falco jokes on prior German bands.

Der grayen sportsjacketmann in the center looks like Charlie Watts and is therefore the drummer. Standing sideburns would then be Bill Wyman. The dude all the way in the back may not even be in the band. He has that "Why did I have to sit down next to a German industrial band on the subway" look. That leaves document holder and beardy leather jacket.

I have to go with document holder.
He's the man with the plan. Or, "der mann mit der plahn."

OK, I don't speak German.

I'll go with scruffy bearded guy, who, if you squint, looks like Robert DeNiro on a bender.

This band's hierarchy can be determined by the area taken up in the picture. In last place it's no-face-white-shirt, then look-up and look-left. #3 is Charlie Waters, #2 is Boromir, but the #1 man in charge is Emo Frodo on the right.

Ah, Einsturzende Neubauten, great band. They once played a gig in London using nothing but power tools, living up to their name's translation: Destroying New Buildings.

I'm going with the small guy sitting down in the middle. He seems to be right where the action is.

I believe the pictorial analogy is right on the money here. They're all just passengers.

Chalk up another for ol' Snivellus Snape.
