About Ixnay on the Hombre

Ixnay on the Hombre is the fourth studio album by American punk rock band the Offspring, released on February 4, 1997 by Columbia Records. After the massive commercial success of their previous album Smash (1994), the band entered the studio in the middle of 1996 to record a new album. The title combines Pig Latin ("Ixnay" is the version of the word "nix", familiar in 1940s Hollywood movies) and Spanish ("hombre", "man") to convey the message "fuck The Man", as in "fuck authority". Ixnay on the Hombre was a moderate commercial success upon its release, debuting at number nine on the US Billboard 200, and was well-received by both critics and fans. It was later certified platinum by the RIAA for shipments of over one million copies in the United States, and has sold over three million copies worldwide. Four singles were released from the album: "All I Want", "Gone Away", "The Meaning of Life", and "I Choose".
