Some hair metal bands kick ass, like Dokken and Whitesnake

Agreed. I wouldn't really call Whitesnake a hair metal band though seeing as the majority of their
discography is blues rock. They only released 2 or 3 albums that could be considerred hair metal (1987, Slip of the Tongue and arguably Slide it In, although that one's debateable).

I like to compare hair metal with nu metal, both widely panned genres that did mostly suck, but had a small amount of bands that were legitimately awesome

I prefer not to as I love hair metal but hate nu-metal for the most part. I see your point though.

Hair metal was almost inherently cheesy but some bands were enjoyable, nu-metal on the other hand was just insufferably juvenile.

Hair-metal was absolute boring, and Nu-metal was just as bad.

At least I think it was.

It's more Alt Metal than nu-metal, yeah. But Deftones roots are in nu-metal. Also, if you listen to the single off White Pony (Back to School) you'd hear more than clear nu-metal influences.

They started as nu-metal and evolved, like many bands do.
