Christmas has come early for Weezer fans: the band released six holidays songs on Tuesday (16). Available via iTunes and amazon.com, the half-dozen tunes were originally recorded for the wildly popular iTunes game Tap Tap (which we're beginning to think will save the music industry as the next viable format).

The songs are "We Wish You A Merry Christmas", "Silent Night", "O Holy Night", "The First Noel", "Hark! The Herald Angels Sing" and "O Come, All Ye Faithful."

Earlier this month, Weezer received a Grammy nomination for best short form video for its clip for "Pork & Beans." The video, which has been viewed more than 17 million times on Youtube, features such Youtube sensations as Chris Crocker and Tay Zonday.
