Friendship Through the Ages is a song featured in the My Little Pony Equestria Girls: Rainbow Rocks animated encore short of the same name, which leads up to the third Equestria Girls film installment, Friendship Games.[6] It is performed by the Rainbooms. The short and song were uploaded to the Hasbro Studios Shorts YouTube channel on April 1, 2015[7] before being made private and separately reuploaded on April 3, 2015,[8] both times alongside My Past is Not Today and Life is a Runway; Hasbro's My Little Pony Facebook page uploaded on April 29, 2015,[9] and the Hasbro Studios Shorts YouTube channel uploaded a sing-along on May 6, 2015.[10] The short uses the "rockin' hairstyle" appearances of six Rainbooms.[11] Rainbooms Remix, which was released months earlier, contains snippets of the song.

It serves as the first track on the soundtrack album My Little Pony Equestria Girls: Friendship Games - Original Motion Picture Soundtrack.

Animated short synopsis

The Rainbooms lead Sunset Shimmer on a magical musical journey through the ages. The short begins with Twilight Sparkle playing the piano on a classical stage. Fluttershy then takes Sunset through a hilly field and Sunset blows the seeds off a dandelion. Rarity then appears in her Sgt. Pepper-esque outfit from Rainbow Rocks in a psychedelic background, and Sunset sprouts from a flower. Rainbow Dash then takes over with a metal-style verse as Sunset crowd surfs. Applejack then sings a country-style verse on a farm while Sunset rides a horse and line-dances with her. Pinkie Pie then sings a techno-pop style verse as Sunset vectors onto a grid. All of the Rainbooms sing two more choruses, joined by Sunset. They conclude the song in a group hug.

Lyrics

Rainbooms on darkened background EG2
[Twilight Sparkle]
Nothing stays the same for long
But when it changes doesn't mean it's gone
Time will always get away
As it leaves behind another day
[Fluttershy]
Things may come and things may go
Some go fast and some go slow
Few things last, that's all I know
But friendship carries on through the ages
[Rarity and Fluttershy]
Things may come and things may go
Some go fast and some go slow
Few things last, that's all I know
But friendship carries on through the ages
[Rainbow Dash]
Been around for a long time
Rocking out hard 'cause I'm in my prime
Maybe it'll change further down the line
But my friendship carries on through the ages
[Applejack]
Every single style has something
Different it can say
There's nothing wrong with being unique
And special in your own way
[Pinkie Pie]
Maybe you wanna be a pop star
Get your fifteen minutes of fame, wha, ah! Ah, oh!
That won't last forever
But friendship remains the same, ah-oh, oh!
[The Rainbooms sans Sunset Shimmer]
Things may come and things may go
Some go fast and some go slow
Few things last, that's all I know
But friendship carries on through the ages
[Rarity]
But friendship carries on
[The Rainbooms]
Things may come and things may go
Some go fast and some go slow
Few things last, that's all I know
But friendship carries on through the ages
[Rarity]
But friendship carries on
Ohhh-oh, carries on...
