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 song that Gwen Stefani composed when Courtney Love told her (as a diss) that she was a cheerleader. Gwen responded making that totally "hollaback" popular cheerleader song which is kind of contradictory. Why? Because "hollaback girl" is slang for "im not the type of girl that just 'HOLLERS BACK another diss'(get it? hollaback girl? any connections here?)So as Gwen Stefani wrote that she wasn't just a girl who screams an insult to a wannabee but instead gets into action, she actually did. If she wanted to prove that she wasn't a hollabacking cheerleader she could've just beat the crap out of Courtney Love.
Love: Oh my god! Gwen! You're such a bouncy flouncy cheerleader."
Stefani: WhatEEVERR! I'm gonna make an awesome song about my great awesome cheerleadingness and everyone will think im NOT !
Love: WHAT A GIRLY-GIRL! That will make the media and public think you ARE a hollaback girl.
Stefani(to herself):I'm making a song defending me verbally about myself with Pharrell Williams saying that i don't just defend myself verbally. Maybe no one will notice.
Love: This is BANANAS
Stefani: Just what I was thinking!

Now that it's become an accidental cultural phenomenon, does Gwen Stefani even realize how awful a song she wrote?
Let me here you say this shit is bananas, b-a-n-a-n-a-s! THIS SHIT IS BANANAS! B-A-N-A-N-A-S! Terrible.

hollaback girl - A girl who fights back with her mouth in response to a dude who picked a fight in the first place with the dude's own mouth. A verbal fight of sorts.

Ain't no hollaback girl - a girl who ends fights with her fists in response to a dude who picked a fight in the first place with the dude's own mouth.
My next-door neighbor is a loud mouth, but I ain't no hollaback girl.

In Hollaback Girl, Gwen fights back against a shit-talking dude. She's not responded before to verbal attacks, "been around that track," but not anymore - "so it's not just gonna happen like that." Now she's fighting back.

"Put your pom poms down" - close your open mouth.

I think Gwen also means "shit" both figuratively and literally - the dude is bananas, crazy, for talking shit, but, well, bananas are shaped like what?

This shit is bananas

The chorus and repetition and drums are like a war song chant, with the warrior girls in the car and the troops on the ground heading to the battleground to deal with the shit-talking dude. I kept waiting to see the dude at the end of the music video, and was disappointed he/she didn't turn up. Anyhow I think that the dude probably lives next door to me.

someone who just echoes the opinions of those who are popular and has no real opinions of their own; someone who rides the wave of someone else's popularity

Hollaback Girl- a girl trying to redo or go about a same or familiar occurance that they've been through before.
A Hollaback Girl, as Gwen would say shes been around that track, meaning she has done that before.
