Enter the Wu-Tang (36 Chambers) and Midnight Marauders
Screamadelica, Nevermind, Blood Sugar Sex Magik.
Blonde On Blonde and Pet Sounds (although I must admit I’m not a particularly big fan of either).
I think Badmotorfinger was also released on the same day
It looks like you are right too.
The Downward Spiral and Superunknown
Use Your Illusion I and II
The only one I remember without looking it up is Kid A and Green Day’s Warning. One of the best days of college.

I remember Nirvana’s In Utero and Pet Shop Boys’ Very been released on the same day in 1993. HMV couldn’t make their minds up on which album to go with as their ‘main one’ for the week. In those days, they’d devote the front of their flagship stores to one new album for its first week of release. They split it half and half, as they couldn’t make a decision. PSB outsold Nirvana to claim number one that week.
I think that D’Angelo’s Voodoo came out on the same day in Europe as the Boredoms’ Vision Creation Newsun. (It came out a month earlier in Japan and I can’t find the European release date). I definitely bought them on the same day. Still my best day at a record store ever
Scott 3, Dusty in Memphis and the third Velvet Underground album were all released on 31 March 1969.
