Listen to Iron Maiden on iHeartRadio

An elderly couple in Sweden is facing harassment charges after allegedly using heavy metal music to get a little revenge on a noisy neighbor. 

According to, the 81-year-old man and his 71-year-old wife are accused of playing Iron Maiden at full volume from their balcony, sometimes blasting the tunes into the wee hours of the morning. 

The couple supposedly told police they were trying to give their neighbors a taste of their own medicine after a whistling sound coming from their property forced the septuagenarian to start taking sleeping pills to get any shut eye. 

But the neighbors ended up calling in the police, explaining that the musical torture had left them "completely broken down."
