It's latin for Fuck the Man, if you're really that bothered. Sounds better in latin to me.

Ixnay doesn't ring a bell...but HOMBRE is MAN in Spanish

If you read my post you will see that I gave the translation, and it is in-line with your contribution of hombre translating to man.

Its a criminally overlooked album too! I dunno why people say its Smash MKII, its a lot more darker in terms of mood and lyrics out of all the Offspring's albums

Ixnay means something like "to get rid of" and translated into "modern" :p language you could also say Fuck. :cool: I think Dexter once translated Ixnay On The Hombre into "Fuck authority"

Here we go: Ixnay on the Hombre

Ixnay is Pig Latin for Nix which means to leave behind.

*In Pig Latin, you just take the first letter of an English word, put it at the end of the word and add "ay"*

Examples: Nix = Ixnay. Hello = Ellohay. Dexter = Exterday

So we have: Leave Behind on the Hombre

We can just get rid of the "on" part.

So we have Leave Behind the Hombre

Hombre means Man in Spanish

Now it's: Leave Behind The Man

The Man is slang for Authority

So we have Leave Behind Authority

We can change Leave behind to just the simple word of Fuck/Screw.

So now the title: "Ixnay On The Hombre" means: Fuck Authority or Screw Authority. Easy as that!

According to an unofficial fan site (http://members.aol.com/delirium4u/offspring/ixnay.htm), Dexter claimed that Ixnay on the Hombre means Fuck Authority or Fuck the Man. The first time I read that I thought he meant to name the album Fuck Authority after a Pennywise song, but that didn't come out until 4 years after Ixnay was released.
