Here are the best artists and bands from New Hampshire. The state is unusual in the fact that it has nine official state songs, including "Old New Hampshire," "The Old Man of the Mountain," and "New Hampshire's Granite State." Perhaps it is this appreciation of music that has led to so many notable musical artists coming out of the state. This list has the most famous artists from New Hampshire that have made it big at home and internationally.
New Hampshire has introduced the world to some of the most extreme heavy metal singers of all time. Ronnie James Dio and GG Allin were both born in the White Mountain State. However, things aren't always so extreme out of New Hampshire. Several pop stars, such as Mandy Moore and Jojo, were born or raised within the state's borders, too. No matter what you like to listen to, there are artists on this list you know and love. Other popular New Hampshire artists and groups include Our Last Night, Ray LaMontagne, Julie Dubela, and The Queers.
