Depends what you consider to be "shred". "The Curse Of Castle Dragon" as someone mentioned is excellent, although there's a few others, "Eruption" by Van Halen. But if you're looking for easy "shred" songs to learn I assume that you're fairly new beginner so I'd say even Iron Maiden solos would keep you busy for quite a while. Joe Satriani songs such as "The Extremist" and "Satch Boogie" and many others.
I think Welcome to Bucketheadland is a good one. There are only a few fast parts and they are pretty basic patterns, so you can practice them over and over again. There's also a non-shred solo which is good to learn as well (bending, feel, timing).

Nobody mentioned that yet?
Its definitely not "easy," but it contains great exercises like speed picking and string-skipping-tapped-arpeggios, and also being able to use those techniques in a musical way, as opposed to just mindless shredding.
