"The Wreck of the Edmund Fitzgerald" is a 1976 song written and sung by Gordon Lightfoot, commemorating the sinking of a tanker of the same name.
The first site to use elements of this was "Edmund busts out a Fitzgerald melter" by ghcghcghc, but this is a surprise site that has nothing to do with what the fad has become only a few days after the site was published. As such by ficklefackle can arguably be considered the first site of this fad. It consists of the Gordon Lightfoot song, accompanied by an image of the ship with a given fad incorporated (in this case, the USS Enterprise from Star Trek).
