Ode to Grunge

Grunge band names had a psychedelic, lyrical side to them. So it seemed natural to string grunge band names together in a Lewis Carroll-type poem. How many Seattle grunge band names can you spot in the following verse?

In that mad season I made my way through the forest
of screaming trees to the soundgarden by the green river
in search of mudhoney and sweetwater oysters
whose fruit I used to make pearl jam for her last meal--
Alice in chains, imprisoned forever when she discovered
nirvana was in her but couldn't be found, buried deep
like the mother love bone in the temple of the dog.
