    Its a cheerleader that yells back what the head cheerleader wants

    Headcheerleader: S-P-I-R-I-T! What does that spell?
    Holla back Girl: Spirit!

    In the song it is derogatory for a girl who is used by a guy and waits for him to call, kinda like a booty call.
  3. Thankyou so much, Now Ed is saying: No theyre wrong, it means a girl with a hollow back!!!!
    See what I have to put up with.

    When I say holler I usually say it like:
    "Why are you hollering?"
    "Do you hear those chickens out there hollering?"
    "That _____ made me so mad I could just holler!"

    I have never told someone to "holler back", never had someone tell me that either.

    I'd go with the first response. I think she's even dressed like a cheerleader in the music video.

    Yup, cheerleading term.
    My daughter was a cheerleader for years.
    I also caught an interview on TV with Gwen Stefani when the song first came out and a lot of people were wondering about it.

    well, my b/f had a friend over once.....I had never met the guy previously, and as he left I said, "Take care now, ya hear?" and he says, "Holla back!" since I've heard the song I repeated Gwen in saying, "I ain't no holla back girl!" He laughed.

    Saying Holla Back to one another here seems to be popular with a certain group of people out here. I never heard it in FL.

    We're like Scrambled here. We always say "Give us a holler" or "Holler if you need something"

    In the song it has a different meaning that's all. [​IMG]
