1. In the Gotta Get Away video, there is a very short scene where there're two people kissing - tell me it isn't two men...
2. Call me a dumbass if it's very obvious, but what does Ixnay On The Hombre actually mean - is it summit to do with the fact that the album is based on some play to do with death?
3. What is actually on the front cover of the Offspring's s/t album - it looks like a man shot in the head!

I don't see how you get "Fuck the Man" with "on the" in the title (that's clearly english). Hombre does mean man in Spanish, and Ixnay is Nix in Pig-Latin. Nix on the Man is my guess.

What does Nix mean?

Omni
03-24-2005, 02:16 PM
If you "nix" someone, or if something is "nixed", they've been cursed or you're putting a curse on them.

At least that's ONE definition.

Oh ok. Thanks :)
Oh yeah while I'm at it what does autonomy mean? I've looked it up in the dictionary but I still don't understand!

Omni
03-24-2005, 02:23 PM
Autonomy means self ruling or making a decision for your self.

if you would click on link u would c that it say ixnay on the hombre piglatin 4 fuck the man

Omni
03-24-2005, 02:27 PM
Yes, I clicked the link. And I still don't see how they get it. "Ixnay" is not pig-latin for "fuck". It's just not.

Ixnay on the Hombre pratically means Get Rid Of the Man now put that in offsprings perspective i could see how its Fuck the Man

dexterisMYman
03-24-2005, 02:32 PM
there you go offspring stylie name. they like 2 fuck things ^!!

Omni
03-24-2005, 02:34 PM
THAT makes sense. "Nix" and "get rid" are pretty much the same thing. But it doesn't literally mean "fuck the man".

And also, about that joke earlier, I'm sure they don't actually mean FUCK the man, I would say the man is more corporate America or something like that.

i see how curse is linked with whats on the cover
it is all death n that (skeletons etc...), and curse is evil, so they are related???

cool - i've started a decent debate with this thread :D :D

dexterisMYman
03-24-2005, 02:52 PM
but it means fuck the man. think the offspring....think ok w/ them fuck the man makes more sence. they like 2 change the meaning of things.

Omni
03-24-2005, 03:15 PM
Well, like I said. Loosely translated, it could come out as Fuck the man, but that's not what it actually IS. It all depends on your connotation I guess. But I'm positive they don't mean man in the physical sense. The band (especially Noodles) seems pretty political, they even did a song for the Rock Against Bush, or something like that.

dexterisMYman
03-24-2005, 03:18 PM
yeah i got that cd 4 free in the mail when i did this servay. and noodles i think helped make that whole punkvoter thing.

He must have been really let down when Bush won the election. If Jeb runs, I swear I'm going to Canada as soon as possible. 3 years of the Bush family is enough. What is this, a dynasty?

dexterisMYman
03-24-2005, 03:39 PM
yes add it up all the bush yrs you have lik 12-13 yrs of the Bush family

To stay on topic, I also can't see the ape in the Self-Titled cover. It looks like a man to me.
