Elderly Couple Faces Harrassment Charges For Vengefully Blasting Iron Maiden

An unnamed elderly Swedish couple—the woman is 71 and her husband is a decade older—face charges of harassment for blasting Iron Maiden’s “Afraid To Shoot Strangers” in an act of retaliation against their noisy neighbors.
Apparently the brouhaha all started when the elderly couple noticed an annoying “whistling noise” that kept them awake at night coming from thier neighbor’s home. The woman said, “We wanted to give them a taste of their own medicine.”
So what’s one to do when faced with an annoying whistling sound at night? Why place a sound system on your porch, face the speakers directly at your neighbor’s house, and play the fuck out of Maiden, right?
According to police, a second sound system was found in the basement, also pointed next door.
Man, I wish there was a picture of these two! I’d love to see ‘em!
