The Offspring's "Ixnay On The Hombre" turns 22 years old today

"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".
