Ixnay on the Hombre is the fourth full length album released by The Offspring, originally released on Columbia Records in 1997. In Europe, this album was released on their former label Epitaph Records because of disagreements between the band and the label's owner Brett Gurewitz. The band was able to release its album on Columbia for the United States and other international releases but had to complete the album release in Europe through Epitaph.
Ixnay on the Hombre also marked the first time The Offspring did not work with Thom Wilson, who produced their previous three albums. Instead, the production was handled by Dave Jerden, whose credits include sessions with The Rolling Stones, Red Hot Chili Peppers, Alice in Chains, Anthrax, Jane's Addiction and Social Distortion.
Although not as successful as Smash, Ixnay on the Hombre was well received by both critics and fans, and debuted at number nine on the Billboard 200 chart. The album was certified platinum in the United States. Singles to promote Ixnay on the Hombre were "All I Want", "Gone Away", "The Meaning of Life" and "I Choose". "Cool to Hate" also received radio airplay. Two out of five of the singles ("All I Want" and "Gone Away") appeared on The Offspring's Greatest Hits album.
About the title, Dexter Holland has claimed that it means either "fuck authority" or "fuck the man" in Spanish and Pig Latin.
