I am unsure about the correct spelling of "Fünfzigerjahremusik" - does this word fall under the category of Determinativkompositum?

Or would you rather spell it as "Fünfzigerjahre-Musik"? If yes, which rules would apply?

Man kann einen Bindestrich setzen zur Hervorhebung einzelner Bestandteile, zur Gliederung unübersichtlicher Zusammensetzungen, zur Vermeidung von Missverständnissen oder beim Zusammentreffen von drei gleichen Buchstaben.
(§ 45 Amtliches Regelwerk des Rats für deutsche Rechtschreibung)

One could argue here that it is a "unübersichtliche Zusammensetzung" and accordingly write "Fünfzigerjahre-Musik" with a hyphen.

However, since it is a "may" provision, this view does not have to be shared.
POV: Both variants are decent, but i really like the readabilty hyphens provide, others may feel otherwise.

As @Saha stated, that is different, when using "50er-Jahre". The according rule could be also found in the "Regelwerk" (§ 42).


I don't really understand why it matters if it's a determiner compound, maybe you can elaborate on that. (Apfelbaum, Glatzkopf und Fahrradfahrer are "also" written without hyphen).
