According to The Local, an 81-year-old man and his 71-year-old wife grew so tired of the noises coming from their neighbour, that they took revenge by blasting Iron Maiden at top volume.
The couple now face a charge of harassment for their late night heavy metal habits.
"The harassment has just carried on, I am completely broken down. How can I keep living here," the neighbour said in police interviews.
The noisy dispute continued throughout the winter with the pensioners booming music from their terraced house in the Stockholm area until as late as 4am, the newspaper reported. The elderly couple are reported to have taken revenge on their neighbours, who had only recently moved in, due to a 'whistling sound' coming from their property.
The police were moved to act and arrived at the house to find that the elderly couple had placed a music system on the balcony, pointed at the neighbour and playing Iron Maiden's 'Afraid To Shoot Strangers' at top volume.
This is going to be me at that age, except it will be Suffocation or Severe Torture. I can already see the headlines.
