I'm going to define post-punk as the years 1979-82 because otherwise the list would have to be far longer than 10. In which case :

1. The Fall
2. Wire
3. Pere Ubu
4. Swell Maps
5. The Only Ones
6. Mission Of Burma
7. The Teardrop Explodes
8. The Raincoats
9.The Gang Of Four
10. Young Marble Giants

Bubbling under would be The Pop Group, Throbbing Gristle & The Slits. I also left out Television Personalities, because although they were doing good stuff at that point they didn't reach their creative zenith (IMO) until later on in the 80s.
