‘SUN’'s songs have been covered and sampled by numerous artists, which include: Dr Dre, Pete Rock, MC Eiht, Jay Z, DJ Quik, Boo-Ya Tribe, Snoop Dog, to name only a few.
With Byron Byrd’s written song "Wanna Make Love (Come Flick My BIC)" additional history was made when it became the first U/International funk hit to feature Roger Troutman/Zapp on his trademark talkbox device.
As the first single from the debut LP, Live On, Dream On, “Wanna make Love” became SUN’s first hit. It was subtitled “Come Flick My BIC” because of a racy, closing vamp hook which incorporated the catchy slogan used by the BIC Pen Corporation for it’s line of cigarette lighters. It started the ‘concert lighter’ waving craze.
