Cause I ain't no Hollaback Girl
I ain't no Hollaback Girl

from Gwen Stefani – Hollaback Girl Lyrics on Rap Genius

Meaning

In cheerleading, the head cheerleader will “holler,” and the rest of the squad “hollers back.”

So in response to Courtney Love deriding Stefani as a “cheerleader,” Stefani has playfully adapted cheerleader lingo to state that if she’s a cheerleader, she runs this shit. To emphasize the point, this song has a lot of catchy call-and-response material (e.g. “B-A-N-A-N-A-S”)
