Hello. From what you are describing it would appear that there is some sort of issue with worn components. A few things I would check are the vehicle's driveshaft U-joints, center support bushing, and axles. I would also examine the transmission and differential mounts, as well as any rear suspension bushings or links that may also be a possible source of the sound. If you need help having this checked, a mechanic from YourMechanic can come to your home or office to diagnose your car's banging noise and determine what fixes will solve the issue.
