20 Times Multiple Classic Albums Came Out On The Same Day

A number of days in rock history were marked by the release of classic albums that came out on the same day.

Examples of this span a number of decades. In the 1960s, The Beatles were involved in two of these instances with The Kinks and David Bowie. The 1970s saw The Rolling Stones release an album on the same day as the Ramones said “Gabba Gabba Hey!” to the world. In the 1980s, heavy metal icons Judas Priest released a classic album on the same day Iron Maiden dropped their debut. As for the 1990s, you’ll be shocked to learn just how many times classic LPs were released on the same day. By “classic LPs,” we mean some of the great albums of all time.
