Everyone from Johnny Marr to Noel Gallagher has aired their feelings on the Brexit result on social media.

Johnny Marr has led the Tweets calling for Brits to be united, and yet defiant...
No one ever said that the majority know what they're doing. All the more reason for the rest of us to stick together.— Johnny Marr (@Johnny_Marr) June 24, 2016

Primal Scream made their feelings clear with the help of casual profanity and rhyme:
