Did you check "Sync only checked songs and videos" on the Summary tab of your iTunes sync settings before you synced? (If not, iTunes will not honor your checked selections.)

I believe that if you still have songs from an artist checked in your library they will sync to your phone even if you haven't checked the artist on the music tab (i.e., checked songs take priority over checked artists). If you want to be sure that an artist's isn't synced to your phone, uncheck the songs from that artist too.
