Meanwhile, In Sweden: Elderly Couple Rocks Out to Iron Maiden To Harass Neighbor

Who knew quiet, peaceful Sweden could be anything but?  An elderly couple, in a dispute with their neighbor, decided to exact revenge on said neighbor by repeated blasting the Iron Maiden song "Afraid to Shoot Strangers," according to The Local. (Sweden's News in English!)

You got to hand it to the couple, the song would irritate me pretty quickly.  It starts off mellow enough, but then goes into the screaming guitar sounds that Iron Maiden is so known and loved for.

Lyrics to "Afraid To Shoot Strangers" go along these lines:

"Lying awake at night I wipe the sweat
from my brow
But it's not the fear 'cos
I'd rather go now.
Trying to visualize the horrors that
will lay ahead
The desert sand mount a burial ground"

Who could possibly object to such uplifting lyrics?

How did they get their hands on Iron Maiden tunes?  Is this their favorite Iron Maiden song? Not that the couple are in trouble, are they going to tone down their musical selections. Maybe they'll settle for something by Skid Row instead.
