One of the reasons that Black Veil Brides have been able to maintain their status as AP scene leaders is their ability to evolve. Like My Chemical Romance before them, Andy Biersack and co. possess the ability to play with their image while retaining the qualities –– both musical and otherwise –– their fans have always loved.

From their awkward early years of lineup instability to their breakout second album to their current status as bond fide rock gods, check out this collection of iconic BVB images. Health warning: This gallery contains a lot of hairspray.
