STOCKHOLM, Sweden, April 28 (UPI) -- An elderly couple have been charged with harassment for playing Iron Maiden songs at top volume toward their neighbors' home, Swedish police said.

The couple was taking revenge on their new neighbors in the Stockholm area, who they said were too loud, Aftonbladet Daily reported Sunday.

The 71-year-old woman, whose name was not reported, said the new neighbors were so loud, she had to take sleeping pills in order to sleep.

"We wanted to give a taste of their own medicine," her 81-year-old husband said.

The couple set up a music system on their balcony facing their neighbor's home, police said.

The elderly couple allegedly played the music until as late as 4 a.m. throughout the winter, The Local.se reported.

"The harassment has just carried on, I am completely broken down. How can I keep living here," the neighbors told police.
