The Cutie Mark Crusaders Song, or The Cutie Mark Crusaders Anthem,[2] is featured in the episode The Show Stoppers. It is initially sung by Sweetie Belle and later by all of the Cutie Mark Crusaders during a talent show.

Production and re-use

Daniel Ingram describes the song's style on his website as "Cheesy 80's with 3 out of tune soloists". The song's melody is a quasi-perfect amalgam of the 80's hits (I Just) Died in Your Arms and Holding Out For A Hero, with an opening piano riff very reminiscent of the beginning of Don't Stop Believin' or Alone.

After being used on the show, the instrumental of the song was used in Olaf in Love, the twenty-third episode of the first season of Pound Puppies, another show for which Daniel Ingram provides music. The song is also briefly used in My Little Pony Equestria Girls, as part of a music video that the human Cutie Mark Crusaders uploaded to a YouTube-like website. Discord briefly sings the song's second verse in My Little Pony: Friends Forever Issue #2. The outfits worn by the CMC in this song are also worn by their human counterparts in My Little Pony Equestria Girls: Rainbow Rocks.

Lyrics

Cutie Mark Crusaders song S1E18

The CMC singing their song very loudly.

[Scootaloo]
Look, here, are three little ponies,
Ready to sing for this crowd,
Listen up, 'cause here's our story
I'm gonna sing it
[Sweetie Belle, Apple Bloom, and Scootaloo]
Very loud!!!!!!!
[Scootaloo]
When you're a younger pony
And your flank is very bare
Feels like the sun will never come
When your cutie mark's not there
So the three of us will fight the fight
There is nothing that we fear
We'll have to figure out what we'll do next
[Sweetie Belle, Apple Bloom, and Scootaloo]
Till our cutie marks are here!
We are the Cutie Mark Crusaders
On a quest to find out who we are
And we will never stop the journey
Not until we have our cutie marks
[Scootaloo]
They all say that you'll get your mark
When the time is really right
And you know just what you're supposed to do
And your talent comes to light
But it's not as easy as it sounds
And that waiting's hard to do
So we test our talents everywhere
[Sweetie Belle, Apple Bloom, and Scootaloo]
Until our face is blue
We are the Cutie Mark Crusaders
On a quest to find out who we are
And we will never stop the journey
Not until we have our cutie marks
We are the Cutie Mark Crusaders
On a quest to find out who we are
And we will never stop the journey
Not until we have our cutie marks!!
