He's not a fanatic; he's a phanatic.

I, too, would have guessed the correct answer from your spelling, even if I didn't know.

If I had 50 cents for every math question I got right, I'd have $6.30 by now.

Yes, bosun & nightreign. It's easy this month. If the writers want to try it they need to wait until 2015.

NHO Royals, but I should have thought of the Kansas City song because I am on a Beatles kick right now, and at this moment I am on Mr. Moonlight listening to Beatles for Sale. Wouldn't have thought of Kansas City even if I was listening to it.

EDIT: The second I clicked "Submit", "Kansas City/Hey-Hey-Hey" started playing.

EDIT2: The date is way off, but I was not even thinking about that when I was originally making this post. I felt rushed to finish it before Mr. Moonlight ended.

Here's another music one if I have researched the charts correctly.

THE BEATLES

The only British* Beatles album in which every song was penned by Lennon-McCartney.

*=because the American discography is irrelevant these days.

I figured with the last one being "Royals", this one might be They Might Be Giants. ;)

GEOGRAPHIC MATH

The total number of states and provinces in the United States and Canada is 60. The United States has 50 states; Canada has this many.
Spoiler
What is zero? Canada has no states. I wonder how a trick question like this would poll.
