Try The Thing That Should Not Be by Metallica - tis quite easy as long as you don't tell your examiner there is a solo in it. And also if you like Megadeth you might wana try A Tout Le Monde, cos the solos pretty easy on that.

Do you need an instrumental song to play? (it wouldn't be really good to play chords for 3 or 4 verses without vocals)

midnight by joe satriani is pretty easy and it sound good.

Blackbird is always a really nice Acoustic song, and with all the fingerpicking it doesn't sound empty when theres just the one guitar, if you get what I mean.

You could play Yngie Malmsteens cover of Beethovens 5th symphony, its really easy, and its a classic song everyone knows, and your teacher will think your cool if you play it with the distortion and whatnot.

Play any Wolfmother song.

unless the teachers a really uptight classical guy, in which case he'd hate the distortion. methinks.

but i agree, Blackbird is a great song. even if you dont sing

Dee by Randy Rhoads. It sounds tough, but try it, always impresses when I play it. Mozart's Symphony in G would be good too.

Falling Away With Your by Muse. It has a lot of easy finger picking and easy chords on the chorus.
