To celebrate the occasion, we’re counting down some of the BEST Matty Healy inspired memes. You should probably save these, you never know when you’re going to need to reply with a Matty.

1. When you’re on your way to this year’s fest

It’s the “but I hate to think about you with somebody else” that really gets you in the feels.
