This is really weird but I did a Google search for The Offspring for some images
and found a pretty weird picture , Ixnay was released from Columbia records so
why does this picture say that its on Epitaph ? This doesn't make sense.

Maybe they did a little bit of the record at epitaph but most of it was done in columbia records so that is why they get the credit for the album. I was just guessing about it.

Ixnay on the Hombre was released on Epitaph Europe. It took them longer to make the change, so Americana is the major label debut in Europe.

I remember it being part of the Offspring's contract negotiations (not time-related) that when they were to release Ixnay, they could be released from any obligations to Epitaph by having Columbia release it in the U.S. and letting Epitaph release it to Europe.

Yeah they were still under contract to release an album with Epitaph but Brett Gurewitz fucked them over so they went to Columbia and the only fair way of releasing the record was to go through Epitaph for the European release and Columbia for the US release.
