Default Help with music project?

So I have to create a "mixtape" essay where I write about songs that have to do with the los angeles (such as if an artist recorded a song in LA that made a profound impact on the music scene) and it's history of racial relations but I don't know where to start. I want to create a theme with my mixtape essay of rock songs but I don't know what to pick. Any suggestions would be helpful. Thanks!

Red Hot Chili Peppers - Under the Bridge
Red Hot Chili Peppers - Californication
Red Hot Chili Peppers - Dani California
Red Hot Chili Peppers - Deep Kick
Red Hot Chili Peppers - Purple Stain
Red Hot Chili Peppers - Out in L.A.
Red Hot Chili Peppers - Parallel Universe
Red Hot Chili Peppers - Beverly Hills

These guys love California (don't think all of these are about L.A. though).

Dude, you must remember that the music must have the feel of the lyrics, and the lyrics must be either light and soft, or heavy and persuasive
