According to The Local, an 81-year-old man and his 71-year-old wife grew so tired of the noises emanating from their neighbour that they took revenge by booming IRON MAIDEN at top volume.

The couple now face a charge of harassment for their late night heavy metal music habits, according to a report in the Aftonbladet daily.
