Does anyone know where I can find some hard rock, alternative, metal type backing tracks to jam to or even just simple drum tracks? I find that my playing is improving rather quickly using these. Only problem is all I ever find is 80s metal and blues tracks and neither are really my style but I don't mind playing them sometimes.

The best option is: buying a looper and make your own backing tracks.
In this way, you'll learn how to write progressions and how to solo over different progressions.

But if you don't want to do it this way, you can download a youtube converter.

That two large pieces of coral,
Painted brown, and attached to his skull
With common wood screws
Can make a child look like a deer.

get an m-audio fasttrack, some cheap plug-ins and vstis, and FL studio and learn to make your own

nobody cares about how well you can solo on a guitar for an hour. it's fun and all but you really should learn the finer points of songcraft while you're at it.

If you can stand the cheesy sounds Band In A Box will allow you make your backing tracks as complex or simple as you like, at any speed.
