rearend noise

I was driving about 30 mph when a big explosion happened in the rearend. Now it sounds like the drive shaft is loose or banging around but it is not loose an all the joints are about 3 or4 months old and they are tight front and back i know its in the rearend maybe spider gears ?. The faster i go the faster the banging. I cant find anything loose in the drivetrain,maybe something broke in the rearend ? Any thoughts ? Motor is a 4.3 with a 5 speed man. Thanks guys and girls if any.

Stop driving it, open up the rear and see what broke
