Some of the logos are so stylized that the band name is undecipherable. Nevada's could be either "Gator School" or "Cotton Social".

I am going to go out on a limb and say Aerosmith is the best metal band to ever come out of Massachusetts. As for New Hampshire, Ronnie James Dio slays that dragon.

Forte is probably the best choice for Oklahoma, although the Tulsa scene and OKC scene haven't had much cross pollination.
For Arkansas, I would have went with Living Sacrifice, but that's just me.
