Spoiler: there's a lot of them.

When we originally came up with the idea of writing down every band Hayley Williams tweeted about in 2016, we hadn't fully appreciated a) how much music Hayley shares on a daily basis and b) how cute her dog is. Both of these facts have only strengthened our belief that Hayley is one of the best people to follow on Twitter. Long may she reign/tweet.

We had a number of revelations while strolling through Hayley's feed. Firstly, Hayley is a fully paid up member of the Skeleton Clique/Josh Dun Hun and has no shame in sharing how much she loves them. Secondly, she is  OBSESSED with Jimmy Eat World - we wouldn't be surprised if she has started a fan club back in Nashville tbh. And finally, and perhaps most importantly, she is constantly repping the various creative ventures of her friends, which is hella cute. 

As we couldn't embed every tweet (it would literally take a million hours to load) we've picked out a few favourites from each month and tagged the rest. Alright, let's do this...




Taylor Swift


David Bowie

Hayley didn't do too much tweeting about music in January but, tbf, Bowie died so what else was there to say, really? Sad times.




In a very bizarre turn of events, Hayley did *NOT* tweet about a single band in February. So here's a very cute picture instead:




Paramore (lol)


Carah Faye




Hayley started to get into the swing of things in March and was also showing extra love to New Found Glory, Tegan & Sara and mewithoutYou, who all make numerous features on her feed for the rest of the year (and probably 2017 too!)




The Lumineers






To cope with the passing of Prince, Hayley found solace in the music of Jimmy Eat World, Zedd, Garbage, Natalie Taylor, Underoath, Katelyn Nacon and...Twenty One Pilots (obviously).





Alicia Keys


Twenty One Pilots (again)


Sharon Jones, Taking Back Sunday, Best Coast, New Found Glory, Jawbreaker, Misfits, Cyndi Lauper, dC Talk, Tegan & Sara, mewithoutYou and Weezer were all being played while Hayley was busy writing the next Paramore album.






Christina Grimmie


Debbie Harry


HalfNoise, mewithoutYou, Twenty One Pilots, Zedd, Aaron Gillespie, Garbage, Annie, Tegan & Sara, Julien Baker, The Domestikated and Veruca Salt all made an appearance. 





Mariah Carey


My Chemical Romance (Hayley left her notifications on during the MCR "reunion" announcement and all hell broke loose)


In a month where Hayley revealed she sings along to Mariah Carey (!) before recording vocals, she was also tweeting about Balance and Composure, Sugarcubes, The Undertones, U2, Braid, Jimmy Eat World and Descendents. Iconic. 





The Cure


Green Day


Hayley also found space on her TL for: Alt J, New Found Glory, Twenty One Pilots, Christina Perrie, CHVRCHES, Underoath and Saves the Day. Niiiice one. 



Wolf Alice


Lady Gaga


Kacey Musgraves


A quieter month from Hayley on the music Twitter front. She was probably too busy working on the new album *internally screams*. However, she did have time for: Tegan & Sara, Brian Wilson and Jimmy Eat World (of course).



Twenty One Pilots




Jimmy Eat World


Who else? Well there was American Football, Broods, HalfNoise, Fleetwood Mac, Growlers, Angel Olsen, Stars, Yeah Yeah Yeahs, Chvrches and Dear and the Headlights. 






New Found Glory


They Might Be Giants


Then there was also: Pinegrove, Petal, HalfNoise, Sharon Jones & The Dap-Kings, Beach House, Copeland, American Football, Third Eye Blind, Arcade Fire, Copeland, Metric, The Strokes, Yeah Yeah Yeahs. 


December: No music just yet but we're only 5 days into the month, so there's still time! Have this GIF of Hayley instead...
