"Hollaback girl" is actually a mistaken lyric in the popular song by Gwen Stefani. What she is actually saying is "I ain't no Holland badger". Unlike the average omnivorous European badger, this badger, native to the Netherlands, is notorious for eating bananas (which is how it received its title "Meles meles musa"). Stefani clearly states that she is not a Holland badger, and therefore is not the type to eat bananas. She goes on to compare "shit" with "bananas", voicing her strong dislike for the fruit.
