While most of America (and a pretty good-sized portion of the rest of the world) watched the election returns come in yesterday (Nov. 6), some of our favorite rock stars turned to social media to help get out the vote — and share their feelings about the results.

We sampled a cross-section of tweets from artists such as Wayne Coyne of Flaming Lips, Beth Ditto of Gossip, Neko Case, Benjamin Gibbard of Death Cab for Cutie, Dave Grohl of Foo Fighters, Best Coast, Regina Spektor, Okkervil River, Ryan Adams, Garbage, the Temper Trap, Christopher Owens of Girls, Tegan and Sara, Yeasayer, and fun. — and while the reactions to Barack Obama’s re-election were pretty similar across the board, everyone expressed their patriotic enthusiasm a little differently. Check out the tweets below.
