Ixnay on the Hombre?
I heard the album, but is that title even Englis? I don't know wha the hell Ixnay and Hombre are
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
You're right...but what does exactly Ixnay mean?

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!
