A Swedish elderly couple have gotten themselves in strife with local police in Stockholm by blaring Iron Maiden towards their neighbours at all hours of the night.
Spurred on by what they say was a “whistling sound” coming from next door, the husband and wife aged 81 and 71, respectively, placed their speakers on their terrace and blasted them with the Maiden track Afraid To Shoot Strangers from their 1992 album Fear of the Dark.
Not just once or twice, hell no, these rocking pensioners made sure this lasted throughout the whole of winter. “We wanted to give them a taste of their own medicine”, claimed the husband. His wife adding, she needed to take sleeping pills to be able to sleep from the noise their new neighbours were making.
Besides the speakers on their balcony, they also set up a sound system in their cellar right next to the nuisance neighbours bedroom wall. They kept the music going till 4am.
The couple now face harassment charges.
