    I think its a girl...with a reall nice, large, ummmmm "back"...you know, like a divinely gifted a$$...and when you see her you're supposed to shout "Holy Back Girl" but when you say it all cool it comes out "Holla Back Girl".

    Or something.

    Its not a thing.

    The phrase is pretty much a guy saying "yo" to a lady and asking her to say "yo" back.

    Its a short way of saying:

    Why hello there young attractive female! Would you please respond with a shout of your own?

    No, but after reading that article I think I can shed more light on the subject.

    It appears that Ms. Stefani has made this verb phrase into a noun. The definition I gave earlier is now shifted a bit to mean that she is not just some girl that will respond to your loud rude calls.

    Further inspection of the lyrics reveal that she is mentally retarded.

    Maybe do, but she and Gavin Rossdale's genetically superior children will surely blind us with they beauty and talent in the coming decades.

    Yeah, but I have a feeling that they will be among the first to zombify when all hell breaks loose.

    Yeah.

    When a celebrity's skin goes really pale and their nose starts falling off then you know they are a zombie.

    Waaaait... you're making a pop-culture reference, aren't you?

    And you thought you were so slick.
