”Hollaback Girl” on Billboard’s List of 5 Awesome Cheerleader Videos

Billboard.com has not surprisingly included Gwen’s classic ”Hollaback Girl” video on its list of 5 Awesome Cheerleader Videos.

Madonna’s new music video for “Give Me All Your Luvin'” features the Queen of Pop collaborating with Nicki Minaj and M.I.A. for the first time, walking on the hands of football players for the first time (we assume), and, shockingly, unleashing her first cheerleader-laden music video. With Minaj and M.I.A. waving their pom-pons and rooting for Madonna as hard as anyone in the clip, the singer has put a special twist on the well-worn tradition of the cheerleader-led music video.
From helping deliver Toni Basil’s signature pop chant to conveying My Chemical Romance’s subversive vision, check out the usage of spirit squads in these five classic music clips. Where does “Give Me All Your Luvin'” rank alongside these videos?


If only EVERY group of cheerleaders got to yell the phrase “This shit is bananas! B-A-N-A-N-A-S!”on a regular basis. Maybe, someday, they will.
