Reversing a sequence using the Reverse operator in .NET LINQ

Reversing the order of a sequence with LINQ is extremely simple: just use the Reverse() operator.

Example data structure:

string[] bands = { "ACDC", "Queen", "Aerosmith", "Iron Maiden", "Megadeth", "Metallica", "Cream", "Oasis", "Abba", "Blur", "Chic", "Eurythmics", "Genesis", "INXS", "Midnight Oil", "Kent", "Madness", "Manic Street Preachers"						 , "Noir Desir", "The Offspring", "Pink Floyd", "Rammstein", "Red Hot Chili Peppers", "Tears for Fears"						 , "Deep Purple", "KISS"};

You can use the Reverse operator as follows:

IEnumerable<string> bandsReversed = bands.Reverse();
foreach (string item in bandsReversed)
{
	Console.WriteLine(item);
}

…which will print the above array in reverse order, i.e. starting with KISS and finishing with ACDC.
