Do they know it's Christmas time at all?

The Irish megastar rocker Bono paid it forward on the streets of Dublin this Christmas eve.

Irishmen Bono and Glen Hansard joined forces to raise funds for charity with a few holiday tunes on Grafton Street in Dublin on Christmas Eve according to E!.

The U2 frontman teamed up with the lead singer of The Frames as well as a few other local singers to serenade the crowd with songs like Slade's "Merry Xmas Everybody" and the classic standard "O Come All Ye Faithful."

Last year they had Irish singer Sinead O'Conner join them for a stirring take on her huge hit "Nothing Compares 2 U."

The jam session helped raise money for The Simon Community and the Peter McVerry Trust, which aid the homeless.
