Banana Yucca (?)

I see a lot of these growing around town but I'm not sure what it is, specifically. I think this might be what's known as the banana yucca but I can't say for sure. If anything the stalk does remind me of a bunch of bananas turned upside down. I know at least that it's a relative of the yucca (but it's not a classic yucca, sotol, lechugilla, etc. that I'm familiar with). Anyway the pic's are nice.
