    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

    Quo modo?

    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" language you could also say Fuck. I think Dexter once translated Ixnay On The Hombre into "Fuck authority"

    TRIVIAL

    Und jedes Positron entlädt sich.

    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!
