LEARNING IS FUN!
2016 has been an unpredictable, diabolical whirlwind into valleys of hell. Thank god we had Matty Healy to guide us through it with his often hilarious, highly education Twitter feed.
In January, like everyone else, Matty was unaware of the utter shit show that was about to go down in 2016.
It literally took 11 days for the shit to hit the fan

But we did learn what Matty's favourite song is so I guess we have that...

After months of promo I Like It When You Sleep... finally dropped in February aka the best month of the year.
Matty's reaction to the album release?

The appropriate reaction for listening to 'She's American' is this.

Oh, and don't start a Twitter beef with Matty. Very important that one.

In March we were mainly listening to I Like It When You Sleep... and not doing any learning although we did have time for this.

May was a big month for education. We learned that the Government will steal you aesthetic AND your money...
How do you sue the Government??— matty (@Truman_Black) May 22, 2016
...BUT if Radiohead copy you then that's absolutely fine. Noted.
Radiohead didn't copy The 1975 they're fucking Radiohead. They could steal my actual legs and I'd not be bothered anyways— matty (@Truman_Black) May 2, 2016
June. What a time to be alive. Mainly because of this:

There was a lot education going on in July but only one thing mattered and that was the day Lorde discovered the greatness of 'Somebody Else'.

August came round like it does every year but what did we learn?

Remember: if you learn nothing from this article you can still become a pop star, kids.
Good luck with your A-levels everyone! If you don't have any and only got 2 GCSE's like me just be #emo and call yourself an 'artist'— matty (@Truman_Black) August 18, 2016
I identify with this tweet on a very personal level. #WhyDidYouHaveToBreakMyHeartJustinVernon

September. The start of a new term. Lots of learning to do.
I love that song about the guy who finds a cheerleader— matty (@Truman_Black) September 4, 2016
We knew this already but The Sun can fuck off, can't it?
THERE IS GOING TO BE A NEW 1975 RECORD IN 2017 HOLY FUCK.

October saw less learning, except one thing...that Matty's hair is becoming more and more like Sideshow Bob's bouffant with each passing day.
In November we tried to hide from the world but Matty had more important information for us to digest.

Matty was also busy plugging Bruno Mars' new song because it's the best ballad since 'Bleeding Love' (don't @ me).
