This reads that the "Content Provider" gets NOTHING other than a license to the content...
It's "Royalty Free" which means that the Content Provider gets NO ROYALTIES, you just have
to "acknowledge" that they hold the license to the content in anything you create using it.  Not really
a big deal.  Just "Legal-eze" for saying "you must acknowledge us in anything you create with
these backing tracks, as we own the license to these backing tracks, but you don't have to pay
us anything".

Sorry, English is not my primary language, but let me quote the whole paragraph (emphasis mine):

Doesn't this mean that they can basically do whatever they want with any song you use these tracks in?

Technically...Yes...but they're not going to get any money from doing so, whether they post it, or modify it.

Maybe it's just me, but backing tracks are for practicing improvisation, so they're really not meant to be chopping up and making a whole new song out of.Â đŸ˜·

This ^^^

Maybe we could start out with a more moderate stance and work our way up if necessary.

Yes, it does. Anything you add becomes a "derivative" work. US Copyright law is very clear on this.
The original copyright holder is also the copyright holder of the derivative work; simples!
Don't use the tracks, if you don't like the terms...

Yup, not disagreeing with you there. Just wanted to point out the draconian terms, considering that these are, IMO, comparable to loops to some extent.
