The couple now face a charge of harassment for their late night heavy metal music habits, according to a report in the Aftonbladet daily.
"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 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.
The police furthermore found another music system in the cellar directed towards the neighbour's bedroom wall.
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 septuagenarian metal connoisseur argued in police interviews that she had been forced to take sleeping pills in order to overcome the noise.
"We wanted to give a taste of their own medicine," her husband said.
The only more obvious Oxymoron is “hip-hop artist”
Heavy Metal Terrorism!
Hmmm wonder what religion the “neighbors” are....If I wanted to drive away some Muzzies, Iron Maiden would be my first choice.
It could of been worser, though - it could of been Pink Floyd!
High risk technique ~ that whisling sound probably comes from the use of their home as an Islamofascist terrorist pressure cooker bomb system test bed!
Or it could have been Blue Swede’s version of “Hooked on a Feeling”....”Ooooga oooooga ooooga shaka oooga ooga oooga shaka.....”
I whistle while I work.

Up the Irons!
There are dozens of genres of heavy metal, and they do vary greatly in style and musicianship.
Earth and Om are two metal bands that I find to be very different from the generic notion of metal, and whose music I enjoy.
Unknown whistle vs Iron Maiden!
We need a third neighbor’s opinion.
“It could of been worser, though - it could of been Pink Floyd!”
At least with Pink Floyd there would have been no need for sleeping pills.
if the Iron Maiden broadcasts don’t drive the neighbors out, maybe Obama24/7 would do the trick!
Years ago I lived in an apartment complex with thin walls. One of our neighbors played mariachi music all night and well into the morning. After weeks of being woken up at 3am, I broke down and moved the stereo speakers into the closet next to our shared wall and cranked a bagpipe cassette with the volume set to 11. On a weekend morning.
They got better. Felt bad - I didn’t get a chance to use my “Welsh Men’s Choir” cassette.
Neighbors driving you nuts with all-night concerts so loud you can’t hear yourself think? Roll out the ‘Slim Whitman Collection’...how long do you think they would be able to tolerate ‘Una Paloma Blanca’ on a 24/7 loop? An hour? Two? Twelve? Wouldn’t it be fun to find out?
