Very nice quiz Quizmaster (or your tyrant name which I forgot), I just couldn't find out a bunch of them.... I guess I'm not good at these puzzles.

Better than me, 2:21. These are mostly pretty hard but somehow people's minds figure them out.

Guessed Bangor by the clues, but I'd previously never heard of this city. It so in one of the 4 states I've never been to, so perhaps that's why...

Guess you've never read a Stephen King book. I'm from Aus but he always manages to weave Bangor, Maine into the plot...

You'd be correct, never have. Though his Dark Tower series has been sitting on my reading backlog for... oh, about 12 years now.

Bangor, Maine also features prominently in the song "King of the Road." The line goes: "Third boxcar, midnight train, destination, Bangor, Maine."

Love this quiz. Only one I didn't get was Houston, and I kept saying to myself " HughRock". LOL

Got stuck on the boss one. I guess I don't consider my boss my employer. Maybe you could have made a Bruce Springsteen reference instead!

Good quiz! The clue for Concord could've been better. "Three or more notes played simultaneously" for example.

You Americans have some weird pronunciations for place names. Oh wait... we pronounce Towcester as Toaster and Worcester as Wuster. Never mind.

I've never heard of Bangor. That seems like a pretty off the wall question considering it's a small town of less than 35,000 people. Perhaps it should be changed to a larger, more well-known city?

The way the quiz is set up, the city could be Searcy Arkansas and if you can figure out the clues, you should be able to get it. No matter the population of the city or town.

It isn't large, but Bangor, Maine is known widely enough. Just like Bar Harbor or Laramie, Wyoming or Monterey, California.

Fun quiz! The one that got me was Houston. My brain was stuck on Boulder, Colorado for some reason, so I kept thinking Hugh + Boulder? What?

Wouldn't "young male" be better than "young man"? That threw me off. A young man is what a boy becomes. They're not the same thing. They're more sequential than equivalent, IMO.

I did not expect my lack of SpongeBob Squarepants knowledge to hurt me on this quiz. Still fun, though!

When I saw "Miss Hathaway" I immediately thought Jane (Beverly Hillbillies). Then my mind finally remembered what century we are in now. Just another old people thing I guess.
