date_select parameter

Trying to add start year to date_select

<%= date_select(:start_year => 1980)%>

It’s throwing an exception "wrong number of arguments (1 for 0)
Can’t I add a start_year, API shows this option ?

TIA

Thanks Craig, I switched to select_year and the start and end works fine.
Is there a way to have it where it might show
1980
1990 thru 2006 ? So in other words skip 81-89.

TIA
