Being dead doesn't always have to be boring.

No, instead of just lying peacefully in your tomb or coffin, a Swedish company is now giving people the chance to play music for the dead through Spotify.

Pause Ljud & Bild recently introduced the CataCombo Sound System as "life after death entertainment" for "audiophiles on the other side," according to an advertisement on the site.

It consists of the CataCoffin, the CataTomb and the CataPlay.

The CataPlay app is connected to Spotify, which then pipes music into the two-way speakers and 8-inch subwoofer of the CataCoffin, according to the Toronto Star.

The songs playing can be displayed on a screen on your tombstone through the CataTomb, also the music server and amplifier.

Yes, it sounds crazy. But what's even crazier? The price.

The CataCombo Sound System is listed at 199,000 Swedish kroner, or about $30,000.
