Really just gonna echo everyone else. Cynic would be great, and Animals As Leaders is kinda jazzy. Much better to do an actual jazz piece though. A lot of rock/metal guys are big fans of Bitches' Brew by Miles Davis. Try exploring for a change and give that a spin.

If you want to go down the 'this metal band used a weird time signature, ergo jazz/fusion influence' route, you want to listen to this;

because it's cool as fuck

Oh, I just remembered something cool/awful that might tickle your fancy, TS. The guitarist from Testament, Alex Skolnick, released a few albums of at-times-pretty-cringey jazz covers of rock tunes.
Listen at your own discretion, but imo some tracks can be pretty cool, at worst it's like an instrumental/muzak Richard Cheese.

It's not jazz, but it's doing it's best jazz impression.
Your teacher might slap you though

How about the weird guitar stylings of Jeff Beck?





Be sure to stare at the bassist's nipple during the solo on ended as lovers. It's vital to the overall experience.

You clearly know nothing about nothing so do us all more informed people a favor and sit in the back of the classroom with your mouth shut where you belong

There isn't really any Metal bands that are jazzy. There are Metal bands that sound jazzy and Jazz bands that sound metal-y, that's about it.

I also don't think the teacher would like you choosing a Metal/Jazz song anyway, man.

Awesome. I know Chick is astounding but I haven't really listened to him much beyond Light As A Feather (and stuff with Al Di Meola).

I think this is really fucking cool;

Cheers for the link, I think I'll check out more of his stuff, I've neglected it a little.

Anyway, I was surprised at just how good Bobby Mcferrin is as a singer; I really underestimated him.

The same piece I linked with him singing:
