The Process:
You, dear reader, please answer the question, "Who's in charge here?"

After sufficient discussion has taken place, a verdict can then be passed based on a majority vote.

The power of the ginger wins again!

Striped shirt guy looks to be most serious. Are these real people? Like, flesh and blood people? There's something disturbing here.

Why is Clare Danes fronting this band of asymmetrical hairstyles? Is h/she praying for a record deal?

I'll go with bright orange as his do stands out the most.

the blonde guy(?) at the front is in charge. he's the only one without a weird combover hairstyle. (the kind of combover hairstyle, might i add, that will be extremely embarassing for the other 5 members to look back upon in about 20 years or so.) plus he(?) is rubbing his hands together in a very nefarious fashion, indicating that he is plotting something diabolical while his bandmates stand around like idiots, trying to look tough so their teenage fangirls will believe they're 'hardcore'. i don't care if that made no sense.

The red head.

I believe ginge is powerful.

As if they already didn't look like extras from a "Twilight" movie, they took their band photo against a twilight backdrop. Oh, SKYLIT Drive, I get it.

Anyway, an urgent rock band should be led by an urgent dude. Middle guy is praying for patience, so he's out. The three behind him are chemically relaxed (possibly Ritalin, maybe generic Ritalin). That's your rhythm section. We're left with the bookends. No one in a striped sweater ever led anything, so my vote goes to guy on the right. He wears the urgent crown.

I'm going with diamond and crossbones, as it is clear to me that this shot was taken at his and/ or her eye level, which he and/or she decided. Plus, I like to vote for androgyny whenever possible.
