Iron Maiden beer stopped over skull label concerns

Sweden's state run liquor store monopoly Systembolaget has halted the launch of a beer from hard rock band Iron Maiden due to legal concerns over the skull and crossbones motif on the label.

"There has been a discussion about the label. The alcohol law stipulates how it can look. We therefore don't yet know when it can be launched," said Therese Elmgren at Systembolaget to the Aftonbladet daily.

The label on the beer's packaging is taken from the UK rockers' single The Trooper which was released in 1983.

A cartoon depiction of a topless woman has been deemed too sexy for Sweden's state run liquor store monopoly Systembolaget, forcing a brewery in Denmark to change the beer bottle's label for the Swedish stores.

The Swedes are Nordic redneck control freaks. I'd like to live further away from those monsters.
