A female of very low peer status due to flawed character. Any peer status is generally presumed to have been attained due to one or more of the following dubious ploys:

1. Lying, spreading rumors, or gossiping about someone behind their back.

2. Responding in a promiscuous manner to "cat calls" or "sleeping around". (Hollering back, or Hollering from her back.)

3. Having wealthy or politically connected parents. ("Hollaback" connotes a wealthy suburb of the city referencing the "Hollywood" neighborhoods of pop culture soap operas like "Beverly Hills 90210", "Melrose Place", "Party of Five", "Dawson's Creek" or "The O.C.".)

Said girl is widely presumed to not have the character to face their accused in good faith or a fair fight.

Due to the popularity of the Gwen Stafani song in 2005 and the general acceptance of suburban white teens it is no longer an exclusively "urban" term and if used will surely identify the user as someone who is hopelessly behind the curve. The only legitimate use of the term as of the summer of 2005 is as about oneself in a self effacing manner to elicit humor or disdain for contemporary pop culture buzzwords or phrases.
Johniqua Kerry would surely have won the election over Georgiqua Bush had she not married into money and been exposed as the hollaback girl candidate by the Swift Boat posse.

A girl that shouts back something at you...

A girl with no personal strength, i.e., 'no spine'. Hollaback is slang for 'hollow back', which refers to being weak or figuratively having no spine.
In Gwen's song she says she aint no hollaback girl, she's saying she's going to stand up to her accuser.

A girl who looks for trouble; be it a fight, shop lifting or a booty call with a bad boy.
Jake grinned. "Give me a holla, but don't let Tina know." Kelly rolled her eyes. "I'm not a hollaback, Jake."

A "hollaback girl" (or boy depending on the case), is a slang term used to describe a certain physical malady that afflicts about 2% of the teenage American population (who cares about the rest of the world anyway). Hollow Back, or Hollaback as it's come to be known, is a serious and painful fusing of the lower 15 to 20 vertebrae. This "locking up of the back" causes a serious deformity of the lower back that when viewed from the side, creates a cave-like or almost hollow appearance to the lower back.

If hollaback is neglected, the curves may progress dramatically, creating significant physical deformity and even cardiopulmonary problems with especially severe curves. Currently, hollaback is treated successfully by special braces, electrical stimulation, surgery, or by combinations of these three techniques. Strangely enough, a side effect of Hollaback, is long and cylindrical shaped feces - much like a banana.

So when Gwen says that "this shit is bananas" she is dead on and knows her hollaback.
That ugly girl, with that smear of shit on her leg, has hollaback and is a good candidate for hollaback surgery.
